dc.description.abstractObjective: To examine age and gender patterns in three strengths (community support, endurance, religious meaning making), and to explore whether the protective effects of strengths on trauma symptoms varies by age and gender. Method: The sample was composed of 3,840 people from the southern U.S. between 2013 and 2018, with 89% of participants coming from counties with median household incomes below the national average. Results & Conclusion: Regression analyses showed that the psychological strengths increased through the lifetime and trauma symptoms decreased through the lifetime. Although psychological strengths play an important role in resilience from trauma for much of the lifetime, as age increases the differences between those low in strengths and those higher in strengths decreases.en_US
