Newman Night: Forgive for Good

  • Main Quad Building 370, Room 370 450 Serra Mall, Bldg. 370 Stanford, CA, 94305 United States (map)

Forgiveness is hard, very hard. But forgiveness is not optional, if we want to be healthy human beings and followers of Christ. Dr. Fred Luskin of the Stanford University Forgiveness project will lecture and provide guided practice in forgiveness as a response to interpersonal hurt and disappointment. He will review his research-validated 9 steps to forgiveness of self and others. He will relate forgiveness to other aspects of positive psychology such as gratitude compassion and happiness. All in the community are welcome for this very interesting talk.

Dr. Luskin founded and currently serves as Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Projects. He is also Senior Consultant in Health Promotion/Wellness at the Stanford University Health Center and Department Chair in Clinical Psychology at Sofia University. At Stanford, Dr. Luskin teaches classes on Positive Psychology, The Art and Science of Meditation, Forgiveness, Wellness, Flourishing and The Psychology of Storytelling to undergraduate and graduate students.  He also conducts numerous workshops and staff development training in relationship enhancement, stress management and positive psychology through the Stanford Be Well program.
