202: Forgiving Difficult People After Their Death: A Mental Health Treatment Copy
It is not unusual for a person to carry unforgiveness for a serious offense for months or even years after the offender’s death. The excruciating emotional pain persists, and the other consequences have adverse effects even though the offender is no longer living. For the devout Christian client, the powerful unresolved forgiveness issue can interfere with current trust and intimacy with others and hinder a close relationship with God. This workshop also relates to situations where the difficult offender is still living but unavailable due to other circumstances. This workshop aims to provide psychologists and licensed mental health professionals with a step-by-step decision-based forgiveness session that can be used with willing clients to forgive and embrace a new peaceful life. This approach is consistent with the teachings of the immediacy of forgiveness in the Scripture. In addition, participants will be motivated to increase their understanding of the role that personality disorders can play in the process of serious unresolved offenses.
- Define decision-based forgiveness and how it fits into Scripture and normative Christian values for a Christian client
- Integrate existing knowledge of people with personality disorders and why they are associated with serious offenders
- Employ the steps in helping individual counselees achieve decision-based forgiveness when the offender is unavailable through death or other circumstances as a psychologist or licensed mental health professional
