Main Article Content
The aim was to answer the question about the role of time from the trauma experience in associations between life-satisfaction, experiencing burnout and post-traumatic growth. The sample consisted of 199 university students. The participants were approached in the Internet by using university platforms, social media and e-mails. The study was performed in April 2020, during the peak of Covid19. Descriptive statistics, alfa Cronbach’s, ANOVA and MANOVA were calculated to identify burnout level, traumatic growth and life satisfaction. Academic burnout indicators were significant predictors of post-traumatic growth in all groups, however different areas of problems were associated in relation to time from trauma. Past traumatic experiences and our attitudes toward the meaning of it in our lives changes over time. Due to these changes we may different react on a long-last crises and new threats in our life, like pandemic Covid 19. The positive effect of post-traumatic growth is not always connected with higher life satisfaction
