A review of the empirical research using enright’s process model of interpersonal forgiveness
Handbook of Forgiveness
The Process Model of Forgiveness, first described in Enright and the Human Development Study Group (1991) and first empirically tested by Hebl and Enright (1993), has been shown through randomized experimental and control group clinical trials to improve emotional well-being in multiple settings across diverse cultures. We start first with the definition of forgiveness toward others who have been unjust. The Process Model then is described, followed by a summary of the empirical findings. We conclude with the latest application of the model: forgiveness education with children and adolescents. Implications for improved mental health across the lifespan are discussed.
