GROWTH

"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

POSTTRAUMATIC GROWTH

Our dedication to the pursuit of PTG and the writing of our new stories was forged in the training developed and delivered by Boulder Crest Foundation and their

Warrior PATHH (Progressive Alternative Training for Healing Heroes) program.

 

Two Wolf Foundation is steadfast in its commitment to promoting posttraumatic growth and enhancing the lives of our nation's warriors.

FIVE PHASES OF
POSTTRAUMATIC GROWTH

EDUCATION

It is important to understand what trauma is, our natural responses to it, and begin to reclaim our power of choice in how we respond to struggle.

REGULATION

An array of daily practices that engage the mind, body, and spirit to relieve stress and promote congruency of our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

DISCLOSURE

Peer-to-peer connection and healthy disclosure facilitates finding meaning in the aftermath of traumatic experience.

STORY

Writing our new story is where the real work begins, empowered by the capacity to choose how we respond, regulate our emotions, and connect to others on a deeper level.

SERVICE

A hero returns with the wisdom gained from the struggles of their journey, able to live life in the moment, sharing their wisdom, strength, and leadership with the world.

PERSONAL STRENGTH

An increased sense of one's own strength and ability to handle the adversities of life.

DEEPER RELATIONSHIPS

The recognition of those meaningful human connections that transcend circumstance. Through sharing our story, we experience a greater sense of belonging within the tribe.
