ABSTRACT

This study aimed to map out the Korean literature related to posttraumatic growth (PTG). A scoping review was conducted following five stages: (a) identifying the research question, (b) identifying relevant studies, (c) selecting the studies, (d) charting the data, and (e) collating, summarizing, and reporting the results. A total of eighty peer-reviewed articles related to PTG were analyzed. The studies about PTG have been conducted in the fields of psychology, counseling, social welfare, and nursing with various populations and research designs. The main variables affecting PTG were identified as rumination, social support, coping, resilience, while the major outcome variables were quality of life and depression. Future research should be dedicated to expanding a scoping review on more research related to caring people with posttrauma symptoms.
