It is with great excitement that I can announce that we have officially opened the first Posttraumatic Growth Research Unit at the University of East London. Part of the School Health Promotion and Behaviour Research Group the Post Traumatic Growth Unit specialises in research pertaining to the experiences and facilitators of the phenomenon Posttraumatic Growth (PTG). The unit primarily focuses on the role of physical activity, sport and the body (embodiment) in the process and as a facilitator of PTG as well as other positive psychological interventions (e.g. mindfulness).
The unit consists of members of the MAPP UEL team as well as PhD candidate Hanna Kampman. Please visit the website to see our current projects, publications and talks on PTG.
