This training will focus on an important aspect of one’s healing journey – self-forgiveness.

· Participants will be able to define self-forgiveness.
· Participants will be able to identify at least one strategy to support youth/transitional age youth with self-forgiveness.
· Participants will be able to identity at least one benefit of self-forgiveness.
