The Power of Forgiveness:  Challenges for Both Therapist and Client
Suzanne Freedman, PhD and Panel

(Introductory Level Workshop | Co-Sponsored with Family Support Line)


The Power of Forgiveness: Challenges for Both Therapist and Client will focus on the psychology of interpersonal forgiveness. Using Enright’s, Forgiveness is a Choice, 20-unit model of forgiveness, the following topics will be explored:  the role of anger in the forgiveness process, the difference between forgiveness and pardoning and excusing, implications and challenges for mental health professionals, and the relationship between forgiveness and reconciliation and forgiveness and religion.  This conference will help clinicians and educators who want to know more about using the process of forgiveness with their clients or students or anyone who simply wants to learn more about the powerful healing process of forgiveness from a psychological perspective.


Participation in the conference will enable you to:

1)  Define and understand forgiveness from a psychological perspective, including defining what forgivenes is and is not.

2) Distinguish forgivneess from other concepts such as reconciliation, excusing, condoning, forgetting, and pardoning.

3) Increase your knowledge in how forgiveness may be healing for client who have experienced deep hurt and understand the contexts in which forgiveness is appropriate to use with clients.

4) Learn more about a 20-unit process model of interpersonal forgiveness developed by Professor Enright and his graduate students.

5) Undertsand how the 20-unit model can be used most effectively with clients to assist them in their forgiveness journey.

6) Understand the role of anger in the forgivenes process and better understand how religion relates to forgiveness
