Sincerely, Marie Miano -------- Training Course on Forgiveness & Healing at the Summer Peacebuilding & Development Institute American University, Washington, D.C. U.S.A. Course Title: Forgiveness & Healing with Eileen Borris Dates: July 3 - July 8, 2006 Course Description: This course is designed to provide participants with a thorough overview of the complex issues of forgiveness as it relates to trauma healing, reconciliation and conflict transformation. Participants will explore the social-psychological processes of responding to deep personal loss, pain, and suffering in settings of protracted, violent conflict, and will examine a Trauma Recovery Forgiveness Intervention Model developed for individual and group healing. Of particular interest will be the different ways in which forgiveness is understood in spiritual, social, and political terms. Participants will engage in sharing personal reflection within the context of group discussions on the complexities of forgiveness and reconciliation processes as it relates to the rebuilding of war torn and deeply divided societies.
