Description
Scientific research on forgiveness has intensified with nearly 2,000 empirical studies including more than 50 treatment studies. This research shows, in general, forgiveness is positively associated with mental and physical health. Surveys also show most therapists view forgiveness as potentially constructive in certain cases, but it can be used in coercive ways that do not foster healing. This introductory workshop presents recent advances in research, intervention strategies, and diversity considerations related to forgiveness in a variety of cases, including in couples therapy and individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
Learning Objectives
1. Discuss key dimensions of a psychological definition of interpersonal forgiveness.
2. Describe research findings on psychological barriers and pathways to forgiveness.
3. Assess diversity factors that might influence dynamics of forgiveness.
4. Plan intervention strategies that can facilitate forgiveness in psychotherapy.
