The Roaring 20s occurred after the 1918 pandemic. It was a time of prosperity.
After some very bad stuff, we can observe 2 key paths.
1. PTSD post traumatic stress disorder
2. PTSG post traumatic stress growth
The first path we see in many of our patients.
The second path is what we try to do in counseling work. Shifting and steering folks from PTSD to PTSG.
We will see this too with this pandemic.
The question is, which path do we want to follow?
