1) Helping Clients Forgive

For licensed psychologists and other helping professionals
 

This CE course is based on the book: “Helping Clients Forgive: An Empirical Guide to Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope” by Dr. Robert Enright and Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons. 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.

All course work is offered online. The cost is $175.00. Licensed psychologists who successfully complete the course will receive 15 credit hours from the American Psychological Association. The book “Helping Clients Forgive: An Empirical Guide to Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope” must be purchased separately. The book can be ordered on Amazon.com.


The faculty includes Dr. Robert Enright, Licensed Psychologist and Professor of Education Psychology, Dr. Elizabeth Gassin, Professor of Educational Psychology, and Dr. Catherine Coyle, Lecturer in Educational Psychology and Researcher.

This course was developed for Licensed Psychologists who are only now learning about the psychology of forgiveness as well as those with intermediate and advanced knowledge in the area. It has also proven beneficial, however, for ministers, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and other professional counselors who have completed it.

2) Forgiveness: A Pathway to Emotional Healing

 

Dr. Robert Enright, dubbed “the forgiveness trailblazer” by Time magazine, has helped thousands of people improve their lives by discovering and learning how to practice forgiveness through his one-day in-person workshops. Now that same remarkable forgiveness process, presented by Dr. Enright himself, is available to you via recorded audio right in your own home.
 

JoyBased on his 33-years of peer-reviewed, empirical scientific research,    Dr. Robert Enright will help you discover and learn a step-by-step pathway to forgiveness. This 6-hour audiotaped workshop will enable you to develop confidence in your forgiveness skills and learn how you can bring forgiveness to your family, school, work place and community for better emotional health.
 

“Forgiveness is a process, freely chosen, in which you willingly reduce resentment through some hard work and offer goodness of some kind toward the one who hurt you,” according to Dr. Enright. “This gives you a chance to live a life of love, compassion and joy.”
 

Dr. Enright explains during this workshop how you can learn and use that process to help yourself and others. He explains, for example that:

• Forgiveness is NOT reconciliation, forgetting, excusing or condoning.

• Forgiveness does not get rid of the injustice but the effects of the injustice.

• Forgiveness cuts across many different philosophies and religions.

• The benefits of forgiveness are significant: scientific analyses demonstrates that considerable emotional, relational, and even physical health benefits result from forgiving.
 

This course is offered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Continuing Studies which is approved as a provider of Continuing Education credits for social workers, counselors, therapists, psychologists, and more.    Dr. Robert Enright, Ph.D.
