Is adversity good for you?  The right answer is likely it depends on the type of adversity."Often the psychological scars lead to people self-medicating or having difficulty maintain relationships"

Witnessing a homicide might be serious trauma and may require extensive therapy.  On the other side of the argument would be sports.  Getting in shape and competing isn’t always easy, but valuable lessons are learned for life.  The Times-News is sharing a story about Idaho’s children seeing their fair chair of challenges, good and bad.  Slightly more than half have some serious stresses in their lives.

This is slightly above the national average.  The negative stresses are what concern researchers.  Trauma can lead to many serious troubles later in life.  Often the psychological scars lead to people self-medicating or having difficulty maintain relationships and jobs.

I’m guessing we need to examine a bit more closely the differences between good and bad adversity, how to reduce the bad and how to teach people overall to bounce back.
