ICRG Webinar: The Psychological Science of Forgiveness - What Is It and When Should It be Offered (To Others and the Self)?
Who hasn't been hurt by the actions of others, or inflicted harm on the self? Perhaps a colleague sabotaged a project. Maybe you've had a traumatic experience perpetrated by a close other. Or you may be feeling intense guilt for engaging in addictive behavior. These wounds can leave you with lasting feelings of anger and bitterness that can beget more pain and suffering. Of course, an alternative is to forgive—to let go of your negative thoughts and feelings. In fact, we are often implored or even pressured to do so. We are told forgiveness isn’t only the “nice thing to do” but “the right thing to do”. During this conversation, we will discuss what forgiveness is from a psychological perspective. We will also gain a better understanding of when and why research suggests forgiveness of others and the self can be a real change agent, but also when it can undermine health and well-being.
