The search for positive psychological change known as post-traumatic growth (PTG), has been of increasing interest among clinicians working with individuals following traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study investigated the nature, time-course and predictors of PTG one to six years following TBI. PTG was more commonly reported than negative changes in outlook and associated with returning to employment or study, being in a relationship and living life in accordance with one’s values. These findings suggest an important role for interventions which facilitate re-evaluation of values and valued activities to match post-injury capacity, as potential avenues to promote PTG after TBI.
