Join us for our next event
Humility and Forgiveness: Psychological Tools for a Polarized Society
Speaker: Prof Everett L. Worthington, Jr.
Date: 13th-15th March 2020 (Friday evening meal to Sunday lunch)
Venue: Cliff College, Calver, Hope Valley Derbyshire S32 3XG
For our next BACiP residential conference we are delighted to be hosting Prof Everett L. Worthington, Jr., who will be joining us from Virginian Commonwealth University and sharing from a lifetime researching the psychology of forgiveness and humility. His recent work has particularly focused on the need for humility in the political domain and the construction of a workbook intervention designed to help people develop political humility. Over the course of the weekend he will be talking about the urgent need for both humility and forgiveness in our current divided political climate, and what we can do as psychologists to promote these essential virtues.
Prof Worthington is Commonwealth Professor Emeritus working from the Department of Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University. He has published over 40 books and over 475 articles and scholarly chapters, mostly on forgiveness, humility, positive psychology, marriage, and family topics and religion and spirituality. He also has developed the REACH Forgiveness model (see www.EvWorthington-forgiveness.com) being tested currently in a global grant-funded randomized controlled trial in 6 countries, and he has developed other positive psychological interventions like a workbook to aid people in developing political humility, which is being tested in a grant-funded study.
It promises to be a wide-ranging, inspiring and practical weekend. You can also choose just to come for the day on Saturday. We look forward to seeing you there.
