Overcoming Interpersonal Offenses: Is Forgiveness the Only Way To Deal with Unforgiveness?
Wade, Nathaniel G.; Worthington, Everett L., Jr.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v81 n3 p343-53 Sum 2003
Explores potential predictors of unforgiveness and forgiveness for a specific offense in 91 undergraduates. Positive feelings of forgiveness were uniquely predicted by dispositional forgivingness and by the participants' deliberate attempt to forgive the offense. Different patterns of predictors suggest that unforgiveness and forgiveness are not necessarily reciprocally related. (Contains 47 references, 3 tables, and 1 figure.) (GCP)
