The 17 Podcasts of Forgiveness

December is often referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year.” Soon there will be 17 more items to add to the list of reasons why this time of the year is so special — 17 new podcasts focusing on how forgiveness can enhance your holidays and your life.

The “17 Days of Forgiveness” podcast series is a joint venture between forgiveness pioneer Dr. Robert Enright, co-founder of the International Forgiveness Institute (IFI), and Dr. Alexandra Miller Clark, Psy.D., a licensed psychologist in New Jersey whose upbeat program Psychology America, has taken the Internet podcast world by storm.

Each of the podcasts focuses on just one element of the forgiveness process and is between five and nine minutes in length. The first program "What is the definition of forgiveness?" was posted on Dec. 1 with new episodes added every few days.

"Our goal is to distribute the scientifically-validated tools to as many researchers as possible in order to expand the universe of knowledge about forgiveness," says Dr. Enright, recent recipient of the prestigious 2022 American Psychological Foundation Gold Medal Award for Impact in Psychology.
