Valadez, Albert A.; Evans, Marcheta
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v1 n3-4 p103-121 2005
The relationship between empathy and forgiveness is explored through the painful experience of divorce and relationship loss.

Included is a case study used to describe the Novel Approach and to highlight its facilitative power for creating a deeper empathic understanding.
