What We Do
Research consistently shows that forgiveness is associated with a whole range of mental and physical health benefits including an impact on fatigue, anxiety, depression, medications taken, sleep quality, heart disease and blood pressure, to name a few. Studies have also found the practice of forgiveness lowers stress, lessens emotional reactivity and suffering, and increases happiness and peace.
Our Project Forgive initiatives are shaped by the large body of research that substantiates the links between our ability to forgive and overall well-being.
Advancing Global Education
Our website is a free online global resource. We provide leading edge audio and media digital tools, eBooks, and online trainings, that promote the skill of forgiveness for overall health and well-being.
Our social reach impacts more than a 100 million monthly, with tens of thousands of people participating in our weekly Facebook Lives with Dr. Shawne Duperon. Our live broadcasts advance communication skills that foster and embrace forgiveness as a skill.
Support For Kids At Risk
Project Forgive’s evidence-based curriculum strategically enhances the needs for kids at risk in the juvenile justice system, by fostering responsibility and incorporating advanced life skills. Our current grant is being used to develop online trainings for the state of Pennsylvania, the US leader in evidence-based strategies that uses a balanced approach of promoting accountability, protecting the community, and developing curriculum that empowers children to become responsible and productive members of the community.
There are many factors that contribute to a young person’s success after encountering the juvenile justice system. To support current initiatives that are already making a difference, several digital training programs are in progress, including: communication strategies, mindfulness training and introductory training for newly hired probation officers mentoring and impacting kids at risk. The enhanced curriculum will be used as a national innovative template for all states, allowing Project Forgive to customize and license its use for future financial sustainability as a 501c3. We are strategically positioning the curriculum to implement the innovative digital tools in all 50 states and create applications globally in the next three years.
