Objective: The present study aims to investigate whether the COVID-19
pandemic has had a positive effect on Turkish society in terms of
post-traumatic growth. Material and Methods: This quantitative,
cross-sectional study employed the survey model. Prior to the research,
all permissions were obtained, and the participants were informed.
Results: More than half of the participants stated that they felt
worried due to the pandemic. Similarly, more than half reported that
they had treated COVID-19 at home. Those who reported that they were
unemployed, those who thought their mental health was affected, and
those who reported that they felt worried due to the pandemic scored
high on the post-traumatic growth inventory. Conclusions: Some
sociodemographic characteristics led to differences in the participants’
scores from the post-traumatic growth inventory.
