Abstract:The aim of this study is to examine on the one hand the effectiveness of the well-being therapy (WBT) compared to the ‘Treatment as usual’ (TAU) and on the other hand the elements of well-being, self-compassion and post traumatic growth during the rehabilitation phase in the treatment of clients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This study also investigated whether the two-continua model is found by clients with PTSD. Data has been collected from 28 clients from Mediant, department of Psychotrauma. Pearson’s correlation coefficient is used to answer the question to which extent a connection between self-compassion, post traumatic growth and well-being was found by clients with PTSD, as well as to which extent the two-continua model was found by clients with PTSD. The results of this study showed a positive Pearson correlation between self-compassion, post traumatic growth and well-being. These experience wants to keep the two elements of self-compassion and posttraumatic during the WBT. Besides, there was found a strong negative Pearson correlation between psychopathology and well-being. This means that the two-continua model is not strongly demonstrable with clients with PTSD. Also a RM-ANOVA showed that the well-being and the self-compassion increase significantly during the rehabilitation phase. A rehabilitation phase in the treatment of PTSS seems to make sense. Both the WBT could be used as the TAU to improve well-being. The WBT seems to be more effective than the TAU to clients with a low well-being prior to the rehabilitation phase. This examine should be repeat in further research with a larger sample. Keywords: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); Positive psychology; Post traumatic growth; Self-compassion; Well-being; Well-being therapy.
