There is a growing library of evidence-based interventions that make forgiveness more actionable and accessible. From academic curriculum for teachers to workbooks for mental health professionals, religious leaders, and individuals, explore forgiveness tools that provide practical advice on how to walk the path of forgiveness.
Scientific research into forgiveness is a relatively new domain of empirical study. Over just the past 20 years, scholars have pulled back the curtain on this universally human experience - and the results are extraordinary. Discover Forgiveness features nearly 70 studies on the extensive physical and mental health benefits that come with releasing hurt, anger, and resentment and choosing to forgive.
A global community of practice including faith leaders, mental health practitioners, and educators are providing direct support, education, and counsel on why it is important to forgive and the process of how to forgive. Dialogues exploring these practices are captured in this library, including a series of Forgiveness Forums and other efforts to educate, empower, and mobilize more people to consider forgiveness.
Discover Forgiveness is a joint initiative of the Templeton World Charity Foundation (TWCF) and the John Templeton Foundation (JTF), and is supported by a Forgiveness Scientific Advisory Council that includes representatives from around the world with interdisciplinary expertise in the science of forgiveness and related fields.
