This video segment originally appeared in the program, “Trauma and Toxic Stress,” part of the KET series, “You Are Not Alone,” focusing on youth mental health.
More than 20 years ago, Melinda Moore’s life was permanently altered when her husband died by suicide. That traumatic event led Moore to pursue a career in psychology with a mission to help persons affected by trauma cope with tragic events. Moore earned a PhD. in clinical psychology and is now a professor at Eastern Kentucky University. She also trains clinicians in suicide-focused treatment.
KET public affairs host and producer Renee Shaw talks to Dr. Moore about “post-traumatic growth,” a phrase coined about 20 years ago by two clinical psychologists.
