1. Winograd, Moshe. Understanding the Predictors of Posttraumatic Growth Among Those With a History of a Reproductive Trauma.

Degree: PhD, Professional Psychology and Family Therapy, 2017, Seton Hall University

Pregnancy loss, from early miscarriage through full-term stillbirth, is a problem that affects a significant percentage of child bearing women. Such a loss can lead to varied negative psychological outcomes such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other adjustment disorders. Posttraumatic growth, the ability to make meaning through the processing of a trauma, is a concept that, while well researched among other trauma populations, has barely been considered in relation to pregnancy loss. This study examined posttraumatic growth among 103 women who had experienced a pregnancy loss. Using a hierarchical regression it examined the role that perinatal grief, family processes, hope, and coping styles uniquely play in predicting posttraumatic growth. Results supported the idea that a significant amount of such women do experience posttraumatic growth. Other than hope, all variables uniquely predicted posttraumatic growth. It is recommended that clinicians consider including posttraumatic growth as a therapeutic goal when working with women who have experienced a pregnancy loss. Advisors/Committee Members: Pamela Foley, Ph.D, Daniel Cruz, Ph.D.
