Until the 1980's there were no published studies focused on the theme of people forgiving those who hurt them, either in the social sciences or in the medical field. Since that time, thousands of researchers have begun to examine the effectiveness of forgiveness for those who choose to forgive. Many thousands of mental health professionals are applying Forgiveness Therapy as an empirically-verified treatment. The pioneer of this new line of research is Professor Robert Enright of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Educational Psychology and the founder of the International Forgiveness Institute, Inc. In this talk, he will be describing his therapeutic model of forgiveness and its effects on clients and research participants.

Learning Objectives
1. what the term forgiveness means and with what concepts is it often confused.
2. the scientific evidence showing that Forgiveness Therapy is effective in improving physical and mental health.
3. how people actually go about forgiving.
