1. Schuettler, Darnell. Posttraumatic Growth: Behavioral, Cognitive, and Demographic Predictors.

Degree: 2011, University of North Texas

Recent trauma research argues trauma results in distinct positive and negative consequences, however; many trauma variables positively correlate with both outcomes. This study examined posttraumatic growth (PTG) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms as positive and negative trauma outcomes. Behavioral, cognitive, and demographic correlates and predictors were assessed to help clarify differences between the two outcomes. While several behavioral factors were common to both PTG and PTSD symptoms, centrality of event and problem focused coping were the strongest PTG predictors, whereas centrality of event and avoidant coping were the strongest PTSD predictors. These findings indicate while greater incorporation of a trauma/stressful event into one’s identity is a key component of both PTG and PTSD development, behavioral response may be a determining factor between growth or debilitation.

2. Simão, Alexandra Maria Riachos. "Recordar é (re)viver" Um estudo exploratório de memórias autobiográficas e narrativas de histórias de vida.

Degree: 2018, ISPA

Dissertação de Mestrado apresentada no ISPA – Instituto Universitário para obtenção de grau de Mestre na especialidade de Psicologia Clínica.

As narrativas autobiográficas são relatos pessoais de acontecimentos experienciados pelo sujeito, que nos fornecem informação acerca da sua própria identidade (Gaspar, 2013). O estudo das narrativas autobiográficas é relativamente recente em Portugal, existindo poucos estudos nesse sentido, quando relacionadas com as memórias autobiográficas. O objetivo desta investigação foi estudar como as memórias autobiográficas e as narrativas de histórias de vida se relacionam numa amostra de população portuguesa. O presente estudo é constituído por 51 participantes, com idades compreendidas entre os 20 e os 51 anos, 31 do género feminino e 20 do género masculino, aos quais foi aplicado um protocolo constituído por Tarefa da Narrativa, Escala de Centralidade de Evento e Inventário de Depressão de Beck (BDI). Observou-se que não foram encontradas diferenças estatisticamente significativas entre os grupos das variáveis em estudo, nomeadamente a valência emocional e categorias da narrativa e as variáveis sociodemográficas da amostra.

The autobiographical narratives are personal accounts of events experienced by the subject, which provide us with information about your own identity (Gaspar, 2013). The study of autobiographical narratives is relatively recent in Portugal, and there are very few studies in this regard, when related to the autobiographical memories. The purpose of this investigation was to study how autobiographical memories and narratives of life stories relate, in a sample of the Portuguese population. The present study consists of 51 participants of 20 to 51 years of age, 31 female and 20 male gender, to which it was applied: the narrative Task, Emotional rating scale, scale, Accepting the past/Remembering the past, centrality of scale Event and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). It was observed that no statistically significant differences were found between the groups of variables under study, namely the emotional Valence and categories of narrative and sociodemographic variables.

3. Carrese, Pasqualina. The process of posttraumatic growth in canadian veteran peacekeepers diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder who have become peer helpers: a narrative study .

Degree: 2019, Université de Sherbrooke

Abstract: Posttraumatic growth (PTG) refers to a positive transformation that occurs as a result of a cognitive struggle with highly challenging life circumstances (Calhoun & Tedeschi, 1998). This cognitive struggle takes place given that traumatic events challenge one’s core assumptions and is characterized by initial intrusive ruminations followed by deliberate ruminations that can lead to PTG (Calhoun, Cann, & Tedeschi, 2010; Joseph & Linley, 2008). Some studies refer to the importance of narrative identity processing in positive transformation (Pals, 2006c). This study consisted of three case studies of Canadian veteran peacekeepers, with post-traumatic stress disorder, engaged in a peer support role at the time of the study, and who self-identified as having experienced PTG. The primary objective of the study was to illustrate the two narrative processes (Pals, 2006c) said to be involved in PTG: 1) exploratory narrative processing (emotional engagement and exploration of the destabilizing impact of the event on the self); and 2) positive resolution (the construction of a positive ending for the story that provides coherence and resolution and involves the re-establishment of one’s capacity to feel positive emotions in the present, as developed from the post-event experience of negative emotions). A modified version of McAdams’s (2008) Life Story Interview was administered and transcribed as part of this study followed by the coding of causal connections (the narrator’s interpretation of a past experience as having an enduring causal impact that contains self-defining significance or meaning in his or her life); of their characteristics and the identification of patterns of self-making that emerge across multiple causal connections within the subject’s life story, as per Pals (2006c) narrative methodology. Study findings support the adoption of Pals and McAdams’s (2004) circumscribed definition of PTG as an identity-making narrative process. In comparison to other types of growth following adversity, this two-step narrative processing leads to ego development, wisdom and positive personality change (Pals, 2006b). The study findings emphasize, specifically, the role of biographical disruption in military trauma and how differences between veteran participants in terms of openness to their experience, both in terms of cognitive and affective engagement, result in different growth outcomes. Finally, findings from this qualitative study with Canadian veteran peacekeepers illustrate the role of culture, and military culture specifically, in the maintenance of military post-traumatic stress disorder, and the role of significant others as well as government agencies, in either hindering or facilitating narrative identity processing that leads to the development of authentic PTG. The study findings provide clinicians with initial guidance as to how to facilitate PTG in this population. Finally, the research findings illustrate the usefulness of applying narrative methods to the study of PTG given their ability to: 1)… Advisors/Committee Members: Couture, Mélanie (advisor), Thibeault, Rachel (advisor).
