Helping Couples Heal: The Intimate Dance of Forgiveness
By Janis Abrahms Spring, PhD, ABPP
We enter intimate relationships blindly, often effortlessly, swept up with passion and an idealized perception of our partner, often cocky about our ability to keep things hot. Most of us are totally unprepared for what lies ahead, and ignorant of what’s required to last the course... The affair shocks us into reality. Fortunately, it also invites us to try again. For over 30 years relationship expert Dr Janis Abrahms Spring has been working with couples, in this workshop she helps us to reframe forgiveness as an intimate dance between two people held together by an interpersonal violation. She spells out exactly what offenders must do to earn forgiveness, and what hurt parties must do to foster forgiveness. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
