Course Description and Objectives

This course is a clinician's guide to assisting clients in coming to terms with—and then embracing and, finally, releasing—the regrets of their lives so that they can be used productively for their own growth and for the benefit of others. 

This course describes a practical program of ten steps for moving beyond the past and the regret it holds into the present and the rich life it promises. 

The ten-step program described in this book is based on extensive research, including the psychological literature on regrets, resentments, and their healing; spiritual literature on prayer and meditation, forgiveness, and acceptance; interviews with psychiatrists, members of the clergy, and other experts in psychological and spiritual matters; and the methodology of the Twelve Steps originated by Alcoholics Anonymous and used by dozens of other self-help groups. 

The Ten Steps utilize spiritual and therapeutic practices that include visualization, journaling, self-examination, cognitive analysis, affirmations, prayer, meditation, and sharing with others. 

Course Objectives:

After completing this course you will be able to:

 1. Define what a regret is 

2. Determine ways to anayze regrets

3. Identify toxic though patterns

5. Develop a plan of action to let go of regret
