Forgiveness doesn't come easily to all of us. Those of us who have significant trauma in our pasts?violent crimes like assault, battery, or rape, affecting ourselves or our loved ones?may have a difficult time forgiving the perpetrators. A person who has survived a horrific experience may even develop feelings of "survivor's guilt" and endlessly punish themselves as a result. Feelings of anger, confusion, vengeance, and guilt are natural, but if they don't naturally subside with time, they can take hold of a person's brain and hold onto them like a disease, causing all sorts of complications: depression, anxiety, and even addictive behaviors. Forgiveness therapists specialize in helping patients come to terms with the negative events in their past, encouraging them to forgive themselves or others. The healing powers of forgiveness have been remarked upon by psychologists and psychiatrists the world over. Search below to find a competent forgiveness therapist near you.
