Psychology of Forgiveness

One of my primary research interests is in the psychology of forgiveness. My primary interest is in the application of interventions to help promote forgiveness. I have explored the effectiveness of different techniques for helping people overcome past hurts, most often in a group counseling format. My colleagues and I are also interested in helping people to forgive themselves. I have also explored the differences between unforgiveness and forgiveness, effectiveness of forgiveness in actual therapy, and therapists' hesitation to use forgiveness in therapy.
