Forgive for Good Workshop

Presented by Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine

The workshop is led by Dr. Frederic Luskin, director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good, published by Harper Collins. The importance of practicing forgiveness has been extolled for centuries, but only recently has research demonstrated that forgiveness can reduce anger and depression as well as enhance hopefulness and self-efficacy. This workshop series has four sessions of lecture and discussion interspersed with guided practice of forgiveness tools. The format is not intended as group therapy but rather to teach self-care skills to heal old wounds and prevent new ones.

Instructor: Frederic Luskin, PhD Director, Stanford University Forgiveness Project
