POSTTRAUMATIC GROWTH AMONG HOLOCAUST CHILD SURVIVORS
The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology, personal resources, and posttraumatic growth (PTG) in Holocaust child survivors. Ninety-seven nonclinical Holocaust child survivors who were born after 1930 were administered self-report questionnaires with regard to PTG, psychological distress, potency, and perceived social support. Results indicated that arousal, a PTSD category, and PTG coexist. Personal resources were negatively correlated with PTSD symptomatology, and only social support from friends contributed positively to PTG.
