dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to explore the lived experience of adult individuals who have been involved in an acute trauma event. What we have come to know and understand about acute trauma experiences has been mainly influenced by research methods that have offered categorized or defined trauma outcomes. Although this research and literature have offered us knowledge which has been helpful in understanding acute trauma experience, it is knowledge that has been based primarily on a positivistic approach. This interpretive investigation was undertaken to provide further opportunity for understanding. Using a hermeneutic-phenomenological approach, seven individuals, representing nine acute trauma events, shared their experiences through open-ended interviews. It was through these conversations that a co-created interpretation of their experience emerged. This thesis presents the lived experience of seven individuals who were involved in acute trauma events as we have come to understand them at this point in time. The information produced from this research study will be discussed in the fonn of considerations and implications for social work policy, education and counseling.
