I'm excited to share the second of a 17 part series of super brief podcasts on the topic of forgiveness. In each show, I will ask just one question of Dr. Robert Enright, PhD, internationally renowned expert on the science and psychology of forgiveness.
The following brief episode answers the question: What are the benefits of forgiveness? (What’s in it for the person forgiving?)
Stay tuned for the third question, which answer the question: What are the two paradoxes of forgiveness?
Dr. Robert Enright is the 2022 recipient of the Gold Medal Award for Impact in Psychology by the American Psychological Foundation. As the founder of the scientific study of forgiveness, Dr. Enright has authored seven books and over 100 publications on the topic and related topics, including studies on cross-cultural interpersonal forgiveness. Dr. Enright developed an early intervention to promote a model of forgiveness that can be self-taught or used in therapeutic settings. Dr. Enright is a professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. To learn more about forgiveness and Dr. Robert Enright, visit internationalforgiveness.com.
