Richard Tedeschi and Bret Moore’s The Posttraumatic Growth Workbook is a gift to people suffering from loss, grief, and trauma. These useful exercises and helpful - and hopeful - readings will not only assist you as you cope with loss, but, more importantly, will help you continue to grow, despite loss and grief.
If there were no trauma, there would be no posttraumatic growth. When trauma happens, a new path begins. This path may be full of sorrow and despair, but we are not alone. In spite of trauma, we can grow as people. This book offers the key to unlocking our true potential.”
We see the suffering and results of over fifteen years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan on a daily basis at Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness. We also see the amount of strength that exists in military families. If there is one community in our nation that can achieve posttraumatic growth, it is the combat veteran who was forged on the anvil of adversity, and the military family that endured the long and stressful deployments. This workbook is a must for our brothers and sisters who have witnessed the worse that humanity has to offer - war.
