Validating the Developmental Pathway of Forgiveness
Knutson, Jeanette; Enright, Robert; Garbers, Benjamin
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n2 p193-199 Spr 2008
The validity of the Process Model of Forgiveness (R. D. Enright, 2001) was examined by asking 82 adults to reflect and report on how they went about forgiving someone who had hurt them unfairly and deeply. Respondents' sequential ordering of the forgiveness process was compared with the theoretical ordering. Results showed moderate correlations between the participant derived and theoretically derived sequences. Although shown to be statistically valid, the model could benefit from revisions based on the participants' report of their own forgiveness experiences.
