The Life Coach School Podcast Episode #112: Post-Traumatic Growth

I want to share with you how post-traumatic growth works and why trauma can have positive implications in “Post-Traumatic Growth” here:

✅ Show Notes and Resources

One of the things that I noticed when working with clients with post-traumatic stress is that they have a really difficult time getting past it. Post-traumatic stress is a type of a reaction that happens after a certain kind of trauma, which is totally normal. However, so many of my clients come to me 10, or even 20, years later, still suffering from it.

On this episode of The Life Coach School, we tackle the topic that surrounds personal growth after serious trauma – post-traumatic growth. I wanted to do this episode in honor of those folks who have gone through events that have been incredibly painful and difficult; and at the same time, for those who haven’t experienced great trauma but want to use the techniques we discuss here to help them grow.

Join us for an exploration of the incredible possibilities that can open up for those willing to do the work and become the hero of their story. Discover how you can set off on your post-traumatic journey and develop a deeper relationship with yourself and become a new, better, and stronger version of yourself.

Post traumatic growth is positive changes that occur from traumatic experiences.

There is the life before the trauma, then there is the life after the trauma.

And out of the suffering of the trauma can come a growth that maybe would not have happened otherwise.

It’s important to know that suffering is real and if you’ve been through something horrible in your life your suffering is for sure real, but resilience is also real. Trauma can have negative implications and it does, but it also can have positive implications.

So many of us are in long-term distraction techniques and we don’t even realize it, we think we’re just in life, but really we’re distracting ourselves from our own traumas, our own experiences, our own suffering.

For those of you who don’t feel like you have anything traumatic in your life it’s even worse for you because you’re not even validating the experience that you may be trying to avoid. You may be further avoiding it by diminishing it in your mind, and it’s really important to know that certain experiences for you could be just as psychologically debilitating as one’s that would be on the top worst traumas in the world.

Being able to go back and say that was traumatic for me and acknowledge it and stop avoiding the feeling that it’s creating can offer a lot, a lot of freedom. Long-term avoidance is the roadblock to recovery and all it does is produce ongoing post-traumatic stress if it’s never dealt with.

I hope for all of you that have had trauma in your life, that you will listen to this podcast because it is a game changer.
