Using Making Peace with Your Past in Forgiveness and Reconciliation
Phillips, Tracey M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Regent University
The purpose of this dissertation was to assess the effectiveness of a faith-based curriculum to promote forgiveness. A psycho-educational curriculum entitled "Making Peace With Your Past: Help for Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families" (Sledge, 1992) was offered to a 12-week mixed group in order to promote forgiveness and the desire for reconciliation of participants towards those whom they perceived as having wronged them. Pre and post hoc quantitative and short-answer measurements of forgiveness were used to measure the effectiveness of the intervention. The implications of this research are to increase the knowledge base surrounding forgiveness as a counseling goal, as well as to contribute to the profession regarding the use of the "Making Peace" curriculum in counseling group settings.
