As mental health professionals grapple with the surge in cases of posttraumatic stress and related disorders, the Posttraumatic Growth (PTG) perspective has been integrated successfully into a wide range of treatment approaches. Posttraumatic Growth and Culturally Competent Practice offers contributions from an international group of experts who study PTG in diverse cultures and subcultures including Palestinian, Israeli, Chinese, Turkish, and Albanian. This important book authoritatively addresses the theoretical, empirical and clinical aspects of PTG. Professionals in the fields of social work, psychology, counseling, and psychiatry will benefit from this book's practical insights and evidence-based practice approach.
