Post-traumatic growth

Defined as "the ability not only to bounce back from adversity but also to flourish", post-traumatic growth is the topic of this CNN Health article:
"Steps to help you thrive in hard times"
http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/08/24/thrive.in.hard.times.enayati/

Since I just spent tens of hours welcoming new students to their health care professional education experience, I understand and look for resilience in others, as well as myself. The book mentioned in the article is titled just that: "The Resilience Factor", by Reivich and Shatte.
