We're taught that forgiveness is good for us and that good people forgive. But, is this true? The presenter will spell out concrete strategies for helping hurt parties get healthy, including overcoming their bitter preoccupation with the unrepentant offender, de-shaming the injury, and making peace with the past - all without forgiving.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how to make peace with the past without forgiving.
  2. To describe three concrete strategies for helping hurt parties get healthy.
