In counseling, we often see folks in crisis. If unresolved, they can get really “stuck”. They tend to fight, flight/run away, or freeze without a desirable outcome.
However, with every crisis, there’s an opportunity to learn new skills, grow, and move towards something better.
It’s a choice point. PTSD or PTSG.
When working with these folks, we try to pivot towards the Post Traumatic Stress Growth (PTSG) through psychological flexibility.
I wonder if you know what I mean?
