Couples who have experienced an infidelity come to counseling in considerable brokenness and assisting them in the healing process is complex and challenging. For the offended the infidelity is traumatic with deep visceral and emotional wounds. For the offender who is remorseful there seems to be no remedy or end to their guilt and shame. This innovative intervention addresses both experiences leading the way for forgiveness, reconciliation and healing.
Forgiveness is most often viewed as a spiritual or justice-oriented practice that places the responsibility of the forgiveness on the victim. However, forgiveness, as a financial term, means to be released from debt. As a financial construct it would include itemizing the debt and determining how recompense is to be structured or a declaration of bankruptcy leading to the debt being forgiven with no further payment required.
