Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Despite the negative consequences often associated with this trauma, many individuals report post-traumatic growth following their spinal cord injury. The purpose of this study was to implement a qualitative research methodology in which to better understand the factors that facilitate post-traumatic growth following spinal cord injury, as well as potential clinical implications for OT practitioners.
