Abstract

The article deals with the psychological resources of reducing devastating experiences of traumatic events. It is shown that traumatic events do not always lead to devastating consequences. It has been found out that viability can be considered aninternal human resource,which enables an individual to resist the destructive effects of a trauma. The following resources of individual viability have been identified: a focus on self-fulfillment, vitality, life satisfaction, the ability to change one’s own attitude to risk and trauma causing events. The author argues that trauma is not always a post-traumatic disorder. Under certain conditions, an experience of traumatic events leads to the post-traumatic personal growth. Among the conditions for the growth there isindividual high viability, which is realized in the ability to be positive and optimistic about the future, to be willing to overcome difficulties and hardships, to manage risk, to take care ofone’s own safety and life ecology.
