Based on interviews over a four-year period, this study examines
the experiences of Hurricane Katrina survivors on the Mississippi
Gulf Coast. The purpose of this investigation was to better
understand the traits or strengths that help some maintain and
regain emotional well-being post trauma in order to inform more
successful post trauma interventions. Participants were generous
and graphic in their stories of struggle and growth. Four critical
themes emerged that participants believed were responsible for
their positive growth in recovery: 1) family and community, 2) God
and spirituality, 3) goal-focused forward thinking, and 4) using
the event to become a 'better person, ' in keeping with current
theoretical work on positive post-traumatic growth.
