critical post traumatic growth
Critical Post [or persistent] Traumatic Growth (CPTG) is formed within the intersection of Critical Race Theory & Post Traumatic Growth. It pushes back on a deficit based view of traumatized people and recognizes that many individuals are not only able to survive trauma, but report positive changes in their life in spite of (and sometimes because of) traumatic experiences. In addition, CPTG forces us to acknowledge that oppression is traumatic and offers us a framework of resistance and growth while current trauma-informed frameworks often rob us of agency and power.
