Forgiveness as a Therapeutic Process
A LIVE, INTERACTIVE, VIRTUAL Workshop
for Mental Health Clinicians
Presented by Andrea Mathews, MA, LPC
Friday, FEBRUARY 3, 2023 | 10 am - 3 pm $100
Carl Jung tells us, in Modern Man in Search of a Soul, that the beginning of the cure for the patient (or client) occurs when he encounters something strange arising from his own psyche to face him, something which cannot be understood as his ego or his identity and, therefore, cannot be controlled (p. 248). This will prove to be his first encounter with the Self.
Discussions about forgiveness are generally held only in religious or spiritual settings. In most religions, forgiveness is commonly seen as an important component of communion with the divine. Is it possible that forgiveness may also be an important component of the therapeutic endeavor? If so, how can we, as clinicians facilitate a healthy forgiveness process, while remaining within the parameters of ethics and the core competencies for addressing religious and spiritual issues?
- Participants will learn about forgiveness as seen from the perspective of several of the world’s religions.
- Participants will learn several psychological theories on forgiveness.
- Participants will develop an understanding of forgiveness as a transpersonal transformative process.
- Participants will develop an understanding of the stages of forgiveness.
- Participants will develop an understanding of how a therapist may facilitate forgiveness.
