What Doesn't Kill Us: The New Psychology of Posttraumatic Growth


What Doesn't Kill Us: The New Psychology of Posttraumatic Growth Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the past twenty years, pioneering psychologist Stephen Joseph has worked with survivors of trauma. His studies have yielded a startling discovery: that a wide range of traumatic events—from illness, divorce, separation, assault, and bereavement to accidents, natural disasters, and terrorism—can act as catalysts for positive change. Boldly challenging the conventional wisdom about trauma and its aftermath, Joseph demonstrates that rather than ruining ones life, a traumatic event can actually improve it.

Drawing on the wisdom of ancient philosophers, the insights of evolutionary biologists, and the optimism of positive psychologists, What Doesnt Kill Us reveals how all of us can navigate change and adversity— traumatic or otherwise—to find new meaning, purpose, and direction in life.

About the Author

Stephen Joseph is professor of psychology, health and social care at the University of Nottingham, where he is co-director of the Center for Trauma, Resilience and Growth and an honorary consultant psychologist in psychotherapy.
