Forgiveness & Mediation: What Mediators Can Learn About Scientifically Demonstrated Benefits of Forgiveness

SEPTEMBER 13, 2011
 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM Eastern Time

Forgiveness expert Dr. Frederic Luskin will relate the scientifically demonstrated viability of  forgiveness to the mediation process. Prior to the current surge in research interest the importance of practicing forgiveness was extolled in both religious and psychological traditions. Recently, Dr. Luskin’s and other’s research has confirmed its virtues in the promotion of psychological, relationship and physical health. Forgiveness has been shown to reduce anger, hurt, depression and stress and lead to greater feelings of optimism, hope, compassion and self confidence.

In this program, Dr. Luskin will introduce mediators to research and approaches to the practice of forgiveness that support parties in realizing the benefits of creating peace through agreement. Drawing on his extensive experience in research, education, and practice, Dr. Luskin's expertise will help support mediators in using forgiveness as a key resource in resolving disputes.

This program will be introduced and moderated by Trent J. Thornley, Esq. and followed by a roundtable teleconference for Mediation Committee Members on September 27th.
