FORGIVENESS AND GRATITUDE PRACTICES
2 Module Online Webinar Short Course
Many of your patients can benefit considerably from forgiveness or gratitude practice. Every person has a history, and in our history, whether we realize it or not, are some events that we remember deeply. Events which affect us every day, mostly way below our conscious awareness. With a little bit of exploration and a simple practice, we can unravel some deep-seated, but largely invisible, issues.
Amongst the many epidemics our patients are facing the stress and anxiety epidemic may be the broadest and most challenging. More than half of all people report feeling stressed in the last month. In poorer communities, and especially in the unwell, it is much higher than this. The Forgiveness and Gratitude Practice short course will show you how to find who will most benefit, and how to instruct them on simple, often life-changing practices.
Mounting evidence supports the benefits of self-compassion and gratitude for well-being. Many people cannot progress in their lives without letting go. They are in desperate need to release the past and move on. These people feel enormously unburdened when they forgive those that they feel have wronged them in some way, and feel gratitude for what they have in their lives now.

Dr Fuschia Sirois PhD, BSc, BA, MA
Dr. Sirois is currently “Reader in Health Psychology” at University of Sheffield Department of Psychology (Faculty of Science). She was formerly Canada Research Chair in Health and Well-Being and Senior Fellow at Higher Education Academy. Fuchsia received her PhD in Social/Health Psychology and her MA in Social/Health Psychology from Carlton University in 1998. She has a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry/Nutrition from the University of Ottawa.
Her specific research interests are in understanding the psychological factors and qualities that may confer risk or resilience for physical health and well-being related outcomes. Evidence supports the benefits of self-compassion and gratitude for well-being. The research understanding how these resilience related qualities are of benefit to physical health is extremely limited.
Her current research examines the role self-compassion and gratitude for enhancing physical health related outcomes such as engaging in health-promoting behaviours and adjusting to stressful chronic health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory bowel disease. Her research on personality as a risk factor has focused primarily on two related traits, procrastination and perfectionism, and their potential roles in compromising health and well-being. Over the past 14 years her research has systematically investigated the health-related consequences of chronic procrastination.
