Families Can Talk About It:  The relationship between posttraumatic resilience and family communication

Telling Our Stories:  Posttraumatic resilience and parent-child communication among low-income urban families
Love, Stories and Resilience:  The relationship between posttraumatic resilience and family communication


  1. Posttraumatic resilience is a really touchy topic, but it really is something that should be studied nonetheless. How did you go about forming your thesis ideas? What title did you decide to go with? I personally like the first one.
