Forgiveness:  The Double-Edged Sword of Trauma Therapy

with Robert T. Muller, PhD

Forgiveness has become a popular topic in mental health writing.  Myriad specialists call us to its high road.  But in practice, when people have suffered from interpersonal trauma, often at he hands of those they trusted most, forgiveness can be easier said than done.  This webinar will take a detailed look at forgiveness in trauma therapy and consider the ways in which it serves as a double-edged sword.  Sometimes helpful and necessary, sometimes not.  We’ll examine such topics as rushed forgiveness and how it affects trauma clients.  We’ll look at apologies and their role in authentic forgiveness.  We’ll consider how it can be helpful for clients to view forgiveness as a process, rather than a virtue.  Finally, the workshop will address self-forgiveness, and how sometimes in trauma work, clients and therapists struggle to forgive themselves.  Throughout the webinar, clinical material will be used to illustrate concepts, and listeners will be invited to participate.
