Default "Post traumatic growth"

My present T introduced me to this term; if you enter it into Google you will get some links. Here is one in Wikipedia:


Posttraumatic growth is not about returning to the same life as it was previously experienced before a period of traumatic suffering, but rather it is about undergoing significant 'life-changing' psychological shifts in thinking and relating to the world, that contribute to a personal process of change, that is deeply meaningful.
I am not sure many people will see this, as this forum is thinly populated -- this is the first time I have visited it myself.

I am still not entirely convinced by this term, as I think I have made a lot of progress but am not really at a place of happiness and peace...
Now if thou would'st
When all have given him o'er
From death to life
Thou might'st him yet recover
-- Michael Drayton 1562 - 1631
