Trauma, Truth and Reconciliation. Healing damaged relationships.
Oxford University Press, 2006. 316p. Paperback. Series: International Perspectives in Philosophy & Psychiatry. This is not a handbook of 'How to do forgiveness', nor a self-help guide; rather, it is an exploration of why forgiveness seems so often to be a vital component of the healing process and of what happens when forgiveness does not happen. By combining insights from philosophy, sociology and psychology, this volume is a valuable addition to the literature on conflict, and a useful resource for anyone encountering traumatic situations where forgiveness may prove helpful in the journey towards recovery.
