Steen Halling, PhD, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at Seattle University, brings over four decades of study on the psychology of forgiveness. In this podcast, Center Director Dr. Michael Reid Trice asks Dr. Halling about his timely book, titled: The Lived Experience of Forgiveness: Phenomenological and Psychological Perspectives. Is forgiveness necessary? Does it require slowing down? Is it a kind of amnesty or is it something else? It is to be “fully attentive.” Listen and find out why.
“It really is a series of experiences and the forgiveness part of it, the moment I sort of break through the opening of ‘the door,’ often comes as a surprise.”
