Measuring Growth with the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory
Anderson, Walter P., Jr.; Lopez-Baez, Sandra I.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v40 n4 p215 Jan 2008
The Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI; R. G. Tedeschi & L. G. Calhoun, 1996) was used to measure the growth of university students (N = 347). Results were compared with those of trauma studies and indicate that the PTGI is a general measure of growth suitable for future nontrauma studies. Results reflect a minimal relationship between growth and stress. (Contains 8 tables.)
