The latest advances in the theoretical, empirical, and clinical aspects of Posttraumatic Growth

Posttraumatic Growth and Culturally Competent Practice offers contributions from an international group of experts in posttraumatic growth (PTG) within diverse cultures and subcultures. It uniquely illuminates the nature, meaning, and clinical implications of PTG across a wide range of sociocultural contexts.

Edited by Tzipi Weiss and Roni Berger—recognized experts in the areas of stress, coping, and PTG—this book features contributions by an international panel of renowned scholars and clinicians, offering a truly global perspective of PTG in cultures and regions including:

  • The Middle East

  • Israel

  • Germany

  • The Netherlands

  • Japan

  • China

  • Australia

  • Latinos in the U.S.

Offering research-based insights and practical interventions, this collection enables practitioners to offer informed and culturally sensitive services to those who have survived trauma in different parts of the world, and to support these survivors as they grow and harvest benefits from their ordeal.
