More About The Forgiveness Solution and Testimonials

I emphasize in The Forgiveness Solution that at the root of almost all emotional problems (depression, anxiety, guilt, anger, sadness, rage) is unforgiveness (grievances, judgments and attack thoughts)-- towards others, ourselves, our circumstances, God, anyone or everyone.

The Forgiveness Solution offers a process whereby we are released from these unforgiving thoughts and feelings— by:

giving up the beliefs that generate these emotions
shifting our perceptions and learning to see things differently
genuinely choosing and deciding to forgive
developing positive, compassionate feelings toward the person or circumstance that we previously perceived as hurtful
finding within us the capacity to feel an authentic sense of peace and contentment when thinking about the person or situation we previously perceived as hurting or harming us 
giving up the desire for retribution, punishment or harm
interpreting - and then realizing - these experiences as opportunities for profound personal and spiritual growth


The chapters in The Forgiveness Solution address many aspects of forgiveness through a series of powerful exercises and processes that include journaling, affirmations, imagery processes, relaxation/meditation, and some work with energy and spiritual healing. Sometimes these processes and techniques will trigger quantum and sudden positive shifts in you, sometimes the changes will be more gradual. There is no right or wrong way for any of this to happen. However it happens for you is the right way.

The Forgiveness Solution makes two bold claims—that unforgiveness underlies virtually all psychological problems and that the solution to that underlying problem (and also other problems) is to forgive. Philip H. Friedman, equipped by years of practical psychotherapy experience, offers you a practical, powerful, profound, and personal book that will help you forgive. Do-able exercises are engaging, useful and therapy-tested. While many psychologists integrate scientific findings into their practice, I know of no therapist who does so as much as Phil Friedman. His integration of research and practice has resulted in a book that will help you, teach you, and heal you. It is the best of blends of science and clinical practice. 
(Everett L. Worthington, Jr., Ph.D Professor of Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University author of Forgiving and Reconciling: Bridges to Wholeness and Hope)
