Published to extraordinary media attention - O'Reilly Factor, CBS Early Show, Fox News Edge, Diane Rehm - Janis Abrahms Spring's long awaited second book expertly tackles the sensitive issue of forgiveness by giving real people a new model from which they can heal from interpersonal injuries, by debunking myths, and by controversially setting the record straight that forgiveness is not the only all-or-nothing sound response to injury. The topic of forgiveness is fast becoming one of the key concepts in psychotherapy. With illuminating anecdotes and case material based on nearly 30 years of clinical experience, Janis Spring controversially reveals that we have more options than just forgiving or not forgiving. From forgotten birthdays to deliberate sexual offences, infidelity and disloyalty, How Can I Forgive You? Takes a bold, new position that frees us from the corrosive effects of hate and helps us to make peace with both the person who has hurt us and with ourselves.
By providing concrete, step-by-step instructions for both the hurt party and the offender, spring brings to light a new, empowering model that is bound to change forever the way we think about forgiveness, regardless of whether or not the offending party is willing to apologize.


"Spring really shines.... Armed with her insights, offenders and those they've offended have hope of recovery."--Bellingham Herald
