Overview


Bringing together a distinguished array of researchers and scholars, this volume reviews the breadth of current knowledge on the psychology of forgiveness.

The biological, developmental, social, and personality foundations of forgiveness are then explored. The final section covers applications in clinical research and practice, including guidelines for studying and applying forgiveness-based strategies in psychotherapy, counseling, and interventions to promote health. This volume will be of interest to a broad interdisciplinary audience of researchers, educators, students, and practicing professionals.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Basic and applied research is enhancing our understanding of the nature of forgiveness, how it develops, and its consequences for health and relationships. This volume articulates the cutting edge of theory and research in this area and outlines crucial problems that must be addressed. Explores ways to integrate forgiveness more fully into the psychological mainstream, with sections on conceptual and measurement issues, basic research, and applications to counseling, psychotherapy, and health promotion. McCullough is director of research at the National Institute for Healthcare Research. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
From the Publisher

"After decades of neglect, forgiveness has emerged as a 'hot topic' in psychology, with exciting new developments on many fronts. Forgiveness: Theory, Research, and Practice provides a state-of-the-art compendium of what we know about forgiveness as we enter the new millennium. Scholarly and eminently readable, this book should be of broad interest to theologians and anyone else concerned with the painful consequences of non-forgiveness--estrangement, divorce, racial conflict, and international war, to name just a few." --June Tangney, PhD, George Mason University

"This is a volume of impressive scope and scholarship. The chapters are clear and authoritative, and together they adopt a range of perspectives--historical, religious, interpersonal, spiritual, cultural, and clinical, to name but a few--that provide readers with a glimpse of how complex and fascinating the topic of forgiveness can be. McCullough, Pargament, and Thoresen have produced an immensely satisfying book that lays the foundation for a new interdisciplinary field of inquiry. Consequently, this book is an ideal point of departure for anyone seeking an introduction to contemporary research and thinking on forgiveness, and an ideal reference for those seeking a comprehensive analysis of this domain." --Thomas Bradbury, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

"Forgiveness has the potential for being one of the key issues of the 21st century. If you want the most up-to-date, thorough, and scholarly treatment of this important topic, then this volume is for you. A multifaceted gem, the book sends beams of insight in every direction. Readers across a range of psychological disciplines not only will gain an understanding of forgiveness, they will also find a wealth of ideas to stimulate their own thinking and research." --C. R. Snyder, PhD, Professor and Director, Clinical Psychology Program, University of Kansas
