Janis Abrahms Spring's long–awaited second book expertly
tackles the sensitive issue of forgiveness by giving real
people a new model from which they can heal from
interpersonal injuries, by debunking myths, and by
controversially setting the record straight that forgiveness
is not the only all–or–nothing sound response to injury.
The topic of forgiveness is fast becoming one of the
key concepts in psychotherapy. With illuminating anecdotes
and case material based on nearly 30 years of clinical
experience, Janis Spring controversially reveals that we
have more options than just forgiving or not forgiving. From
forgotten birthdays to deliberate sexual offences,
infidelity and disloyalty, How Can I Forgive You?
takes a bold new position that frees us from the corrosive
effects of hate and helps us to make peace with both the
person who has hurt us and with ourselves. By providing
concrete, step–by–step instructions for both the hurt party
and the offender, Spring brings to light a new, empowering
model that is bound to change forever the way we think about
forgiveness, regardless of whether or not the offending
party is willing to apologise.
