Love, Culture, Stories & Resilience: The relationship between open family communication about traumatic memories and posttraumatic resilience
Love = The only reason you would withstand the pain of talking about it
Culture = What our grandmothers and ancestors taught us to do in order to heal
Stories = An organizing narrative takes the fragments of our trauma memories and puts them into a whole, coherent story
Resilience = Not only reduced PTSD, anxiety, and depressive symptoms, but also Hope, Trust, Love and Growth.
