Radical self forgiveness worksheet
What is the theory behind this Radical self forgiveness worksheet?
Self-forgiveness is giving up the guilt, resentment and shame regarding one’s shortcomings. It is making peace with yourself and getting rid of the need to dwell on what happened that made you feel negative. According to Collins Tipping, self forgiveness consists of five stages that are; 1) Telling the story, 2) completely immersing yourself into that negative feeling once and for all, 3) collapsing then 4) reframing the story and finally 5) fusion of the new interpretation of the story with the old one. It is suggested that everything happens for a reason and when that reason is accepted, the shortcoming can be viewed as something purposeful.
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet is based on the techniques introduced by Collins Tippings in his book Radical Self-forgiveness. This technique will help the clients in achieving the five stages one by one gradually and they will be able to forgive themselves with greater insight.
