The purposes of this study were to identify the relationships among post-traumatic growth, trauma experience, cognitive emotion regulation (adoptive and maladoptive) and to determine the influences on post-traumatic growth in nurses.


The participants were 105 nurses in Chung-Nam and Gyeonggi-do. Some variables related to post-traumatic growth, trauma experience, cognitive emotion regulation were measured using reliable instruments.


There showed significant positive relationships of post-traumatic growth with adoptive cognitive emotion regulation. Among predictors, adoptive cognitive emotion regulation, career and position had statistically significant influence on post-traumatic growth.


These results suggest that intervention on post-traumatic growth that targets the adoptive cognitive emotion regulation may be helpful in enhancing post-traumatic growth in nurses.
