Recovery

The good news is that the possibility of recovery from trauma is high, and according to Seligman and Tedeschi, the likelihood of post-traumatic growth after highly stressful episodes is greater in most than the potential for PTSD.

Social interactions are a critical part of the recovery process, and interactions with non-clinicians (family, friends, colleagues) can have significant positive influence. Remember, find out what your staff and team need. Don’t make assumptions, remember how different we all are.
