Abstract

Abstract

How does one overcome the hardship of letting go of resentment in order to resume or establish a substantial bond with the traumatizing person, usually a parent, mindful of the fact that the experience of the self is rooted in those very same intimate relationships? The centerpiece of this book is forgiveness in intimate relationships and recovery from trauma as viewed psychodynamically in the clinical situation. Traumas inflicted by intimates, especially by parents, differ from traumas in the form of transgressions and betrayals in the context of less rooted relationships. While some betrayal

Abstract

There is a need in both public and professional sectors for a deeper, and more complete understanding of forgiveness, as we are - in the author's own words - ""on the threshold of an age of forgiveness and reconciliation."" And yet despite continued interest and development in the field, researchers, clinicians, practitioners, and academics have long been without a comprehensive resource on which to base their work. The Handbook of Forgiveness summarizes the state of the science in the research, practice, and teaching of forgiveness. Chapters approach forgiveness and reconciliation

Abstract

Amidst the cacophony of claims made about forgiveness, this book serves to aid in an effort to put “forgiveness in perspective.” Marieke Smit and Christopher R. Allers have collected here ten essays written by twelve authors from around the world and across the disciplinary spectrum including philosophers, practitioners, psychologists, literary theorists, and prison chaplains. All the essays offer a perspective on forgiveness and put forgiveness in perspective whether by tracing what forgiveness “is,” how this religious inheritance is worked out in our secularizing societies, how forgiveness works in our quotidian experience, or a particular manifestation in a particular context such as marriage, prison, or after an abortion, to name a few. The multi-disciplinary character of this book provides a multi-disciplinary appeal as well as a resource to enlarge one’s own perspective on this perplexing, enigmatic, and wonderfully complex concept of forgiveness.
