Anger, Hurt & Forgiveness
Is Reconciliation Possible?
LYNN ANDERSON, LMFT
Holding a grudge has been likened to taking poison and hoping the enemy will die. While the beneficial effects of forgiveness are well-documented, research shows that forgiveness itself is a complex problem. Recognizing that “easy” forgiveness is not the goal for either psychological or spiritual development, this workshop will explore the psychology of anger, hurt and forgiveness, focusing on their inter-relatedness. The issue of self-forgiveness will be addressed as a necessary pre-requisite for forgiving others. This is an ongoing support group – Come to one, come to all.
