摘要: 

本研究目的旨在探討因寵物死亡而心理受到創傷的個體,如何從寵物死亡的創傷事件中萃取新意義,並且進而得到成長的發展及改變;以及深入探討個體在創傷後成長過程中,其催化因素為何。本研究採用質性研究的方式,研究對象為三位歷經寵物死亡創傷經驗之受訪者;經由訪談法得到文本資料後,以詮釋學為觀點,理解並詮釋飼主在經歷寵物死亡之創傷後成長課題。研究發現:一、寵物對飼主及其家庭均有其特殊意義;二、飼主均能面對與調適寵物死亡之創傷;三、寵物死亡的創傷將會帶給飼主正面與負面雙重力量的影響:淬鍊與昇華;四、寵物死亡雖會造成飼主心理創傷,但也會帶給飼主生命的成長與改變。最後,針對本研究結果提出相關限制與建議,並對研究整體進行反思,以期盼未來國內能對於寵物死亡造成飼主PTSD與PTG的相關主題研究上,能有更多的關注及研究。
