An Empirical Guide to Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope .
For licensed psychologists and other helping professionals
This CE course is based on the recently published book by the same title: Forgiveness Therapy by psychologist Dr. Robert Enright and psychiatrist Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons. Publication of the book itself by the APA signifies that Forgiveness Therapy is now rightfully taking its place alongside such historically accepted therapies as Psychoanalysis, Humanistic Psychotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy–a huge step forward for forgiveness. This course will help you understand the significance and capabilities of forgiveness therapy.
The course work includes the empirical foundations of forgiveness therapy, process models of forgiveness interventions, and the clinical application of forgiveness in a variety of clinical presentations such as depressive and anxiety disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, marital and family adjustment disorders.
The goal of the home study course is to provide professionals: 1) with an understanding of the empirical basis for forgiveness in therapy; 2) with a working knowledge of the psychological processes of forgiveness; 3) with an understanding of the relevance of forgiveness for many clinical presentations; and 4) with clinical expertise in applying the forgiveness process to his/her own practice.
While Forgiveness Therapy is the required course text, all course work is offered online. For licensed psychologists, this course has been rated as a 15-credit hour continuing education course by the American Psychological Association (APA). The book Forgiveness Therapy must be purchased separately. The book can be ordered on Amazon.com or from the APA. In addition to the Forgiveness Therapy text, students gain insight from an instructor-prepared Content Summary that accompanies each unit of the text; Read the Chapter One Content Summary.

It has also proven beneficial, however, for ministers, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and other professional counselors who have completed it.

Another Unsolicited CE Course Review:
“Overall, as a healthcare chaplain and a clergy person, the Forgiveness Therapy course equips me to think about and to work with forgiveness in a practical way that bridges the gap between the theology and theory and the everyday need for many to start to do something more constructive with their anger.”
