“The world breaks everyone, and afterward,
many are strong at the broken places.”
- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms.
Overview: Posttraumatic Growth (PTG), a term coined by psychologists Tedeschi and Calhoun (2013), refers to positive psychological growth that occurs in the aftermath of adversity. Although only recently introduced into the psychological literature, the concept is not new, as evidenced by the Hemingway quote.
