    This study investigated the relationship between resilience, personal meaning and vicarioustraumatization in a sample of trauma therapists (N=68). Participants completed ARP(Adversity Response Profile), PMP (Personal Meaning Profile) and TABS (Trauma andAttachment Belief Scale). The results showed that both personal meaning and resilience levelare negatively related to the vicarious traumatization level of a therapist. Personal meaning was found to mediate the relationship between resilience and vicarious traumatization.On the level of subscales, personal meaning of relationships with others was the sole mostimportant predictor of resilience.
