Growth Following Adversity and Its Relation with Subjective Well-Being and Psychological Well-Being
Durkin, John; Joseph, Stephen
Journal of Loss and Trauma, v14 n3 p228-234 2009
Studies have shown that posttraumatic growth is associated with greater well-being. However, it is not clear whether posttraumatic growth is related to subjective well-being (SWB) or psychological well-being (PWB). Whereas SWB is derived from the hedonistic tradition, PWB is derived from the eudaimonic tradition. In a sample of 125 college students who had experienced a distressing event, we found evidence that growth is related to PWB rather than SWB. (Contains 1 table.)
