BACKGROUND: When a child is diagnosed with cancer, parents are confronted with the potential fatality of the disease. This traumatic stressor is often followed by additional stressful events during treatment. However, once their child is cured many parents also reported experiencing psychological growth. We aimed to describe post-traumatic growth (PTG) in parents of adolescent childhood cancer survivors, compare it with PTG in existing samples experiencing stressful events, and describe characteristics of parents who report PTG.
