A Step-by-Step Approach to Forgiveness
Countless victims who have been deeply hurt by another and who are caught in a vortex of anger, depression, and resentment have discovered the life-changing benefits of forgiveness.

As creator of the first scientifically proven forgiveness program in the country, Dr. Robert Enright has written a book, Forgiveness is a Choice: A Step-by-Step Process for Resolving Anger and Restoring Hope, that shows how forgiveness can reduce anxiety and depression and increase self-esteem. Filled with wisdom, encouragement, and focused journaling exercises, the book leads the reader on a path that will bring insight, personal growth, and release. It can be used as a treatment manual whether you are working with a counselor or on your own.

Dr. Enright’s forgiveness research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison stretches back more than 25 years and includes more than 100 publications. Check out our website’s research page to learn more about Dr. Enright’s positive results in studies with targeted subjects including:

  • emotionally abused women

  • cardiac patients
  • terminally ill, elderly cancer patients
  • drug rehabilitation
