Event Details

Research shows the value of forgiveness in suicide prevention, recovery from a suicide attempt, when families/friends are affected by an attempt, and when an individual dies by suicide. Forgiveness is not regularly practiced or understood. We will teach on one model of forgiveness (based on the work of Dr. Robert Enright). We will also reflect on the presenter’s mental health journey and how forgiveness has served as a protective factor in his journey of addiction recovery.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the role of unforgiveness in suicidal thinking and addiction.
  • Understand the Enright Forgiveness Model.
  • Learn practices to prepare to forgive and live a mentally healthier life.
