Although on paper, forgiveness seems like a wonderful, virtuous thing to do, in reality, it can be an extremely difficult and lengthy process. This course is meant to broaden the way you think about forgiveness by providing a brief introduction to interpersonal forgiveness and providing clarity around what is and isn’t forgiveness. While learning how to forgive takes more than a single session, tools to help you will be shared. Topics will include misconceptions of forgiveness and why they’re dangerous, factors that increase the likelihood you will forgive, and health benefits of forgiveness.
