Forgiveness has been held up as the gold standard of recovery from interpersonal injuries. We have been taught that forgiveness is good for us and that good people forgive. In real life, however, hurt parties often find that they can't or won't forgive, particularly when the offender is unrepentant or dead. This course will reframe Genuine Forgiveness as an intimate dance, a hard-won transaction, which asks as much of the offender as it does of the hurt party. You will learn to help offenders perform bold, humble, heartfelt acts of repair to earn forgiveness. You will also learn to help hurt parties release their obsessive preoccupation with the injury and create opportunities for the offender to make good. As an alternative to forgiveness, a self-healing process called Acceptance will be described, along with 10 concrete steps to rise above the violation and make peace with the past.
