About the Webinar

In Pt.2 of the ‘Opportunities and Possibilities: Posttraumatic Growth in Research and Practice’ webinar series, we will continue our conversation on PTG through a facilitated discussion from a variety of panelists with experience in both posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and PTG from the academic, clinical, and non-profit communities.

Session two of the PTG series will highlight content from Pt.1 where presenter, Richard Tedeschi, Ph.D., outlines the evolution of PTG and the framework for therapeutic interventions that facilitate PTG through expert companionship.  Each panelist will answer a series of question surrounding PTG and their experience and/or perspective to better contextualize research and information from Pt. 1. Participants are encouraged to attend the July Pt.1 session and come ready to engage with an exciting lineup of expert panelists.

**Note: This webinar is a collaboration between the following MFLN concentrations: Military Caregiving, Family Development, and Family Transitions.
