Why I Don’t Use the Word ‘Forgiveness’ in Trauma Therapy

The people I work with in the therapy room are resilient and courageous. They are able to work through their traumas, but many get caught up on one point: They believe they are supposed to forgive the perpetrator but can’t seem to get there.

This is what I tell them: You don’t have to forgive in order to move on.
