Resilience and Post-Traumatic Growth: Healing from Loss and Trauma with Compassion, Clarity, and Courage

Linda Graham, MFT

People do learn and grow from meeting the challenges and adversities of the human condition when they have support, resources, and skills to do so. Practices of mindfulness, self-compassion, empathy, and forgiveness help shift the functioning of the brain out of contraction and reactivity into more receptivity, openness, the larger perspective. People can recover capacities that reduce the impacts of stress and trauma, recover inner stability, meaning and purpose, and move them into thriving and flourishing.
