Helping Clients Forgive: An Empirical Guide for Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope
American Psychological Association Books
Robert Enright & Richard Fitzgibbons - August 2000
Comments from the back cover:
Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor of Psychiatry, University of
Pennsylvania, has stated that in his review that, "anger and the wish to punish a
family member or friend for past grievances often remain resistant to the most
useful cognitive behavioral approaches, Enright and Fitzgibbons show how
forgiveness can help to finalize past resentment and allow people to lay their past
grievances to rest. This is essential reading for anyone working with
patients as well as for those people who cannot relinquish past hurts."
Redford B. Williams, Jr., MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral
Sciences, Duke University Medical Center, has stated, "Enright and Fitzgibbons
have contributed their considerable research and clinical expertise to produce a
landmark volume on this important concept in human relations. This book
should be read by anyone who tries to help those who have been wronged by others,
as well as by those who have been wronged."
Allen E. Bergin, PhD; Past President, Society for Psychotherapy Research;
Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Brigham Young University, has stated, "If
there were a national book award in mental health, this would be my nominee for
book of the year. This is an original contribution to the therapeutic
literature. No competent professional can afford to be uninformed of its ideas and
methods. Practice, research, and theory will be enriched for years to come by
this contribution from Enright and Fitzgibbons and their many collaborators."
This book was the second offering in the APA Books spring 2001 catalogue.
