December Webinar Event

Forgiveness is a Two-Person Dance
Presented by : Dr. Anne Dilenschneider
Friday, December 3, 12pm CT/ 11am MT 

1.5 Contact Hours (90 minute presentation)

Description: In the U.S., many Christian clergy and mental health clinicians ask people to “be like Jesus,” and “forgive” after harm. Professionals from other countries, including Truth and Reconciliation Committees throughout Africa, challenge this. They distinguish between the individual work of mourning and letting go, and the relational work of forgiveness. This workshop will re-frame forgiveness based on research with women from 5 religious traditions and 6 nationalities on the process of forgiveness.

This workshop will re-frame forgiveness from a cross-cultural perspective. It is based on Dr. Anne Dilenschneider’s doctoral research with women from 5 religious traditions and 6 nationalities on the topic of relational trauma and forgiveness. It is also informed by the contributions of Dr. Carol Gilligan of New York University, Ms. Clemence Ngijoe Yanke, M.A. of Cameroon, and Dr. Anri Morimoto of the International Christian University in Japan. 

Learning Objectives: This workshop is designed to help participants: Articulate a basic understanding of the process of forgiveness; Distinguish the process of forgiveness from the process of mourning and letting go; and Describe the distinct processes of apology, forgiveness, and mourning, and how these relate to the dynamics of love, justice, and power in relationships

Speaker Bio: Anne Dilenschneider has a PhD in clinical psychology, including the completion of cross-cultural doctoral research in forgiveness and restorative justice. She is a member of the Keepers of the Canton Native Asylum Story, a Native/Non-Native restorative justice project with 53 Native American Nations (2012-present). In addition, Dr. Dilenschneider was a member of the design team, and a participant in, the first restorative justice program for at-risk adolescent girls in the California juvenile justice system. She is currently licensed in SD, IA, and MN and is a board approved supervisor. Anne is in private practice in Sioux Falls.
