The State of Hawaii Department of Human Services is sponsoring a free Forgive for Good Workshop on Oahu presented by Fred Luskin, Ph.D., former Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects, to promote forgiveness life skill training.

Participants at this workshop will learn the basics of forgiveness methods developed by the Stanford Forgiveness Projects.  Participants will be able to:


  • Learn the basics of forgiveness methods and gain an understanding of the process and components of grievance and forgiveness related both to self and others.
  • Learn simple techniques of facilitating self-change and emerge with an enhanced repertoire of forgiveness skills to help others.
  • Have an increased understanding of the mind body connection and how it relates to emotional and physical wellbeing.
  • Learn the 9 steps of forgiveness.

Dr. Luskin holds a Ph.D. in Counseling and Health Psychology from Stanford University. He is the Co-Director of the Stanford-Northern Ireland HOPE Project, an ongoing series of workshops and research projects that investigate the effectiveness of his forgiveness methods on the victims of political violence. He served as the Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects, the largest research projects to date on the training and measurement of a forgiveness intervention. He currently works as a Senior Fellow at the Stanford Center on Conflict and Negotiation.
