Forgiveness and Addiction

In collaboration with Durham University theologian of addiction Prof Christopher C. H. Cook, Wendy has written a chapter in this volume, drawing on theme of forgiveness in the Higher Power Project narratives. In her ‘Concluding Reflections’ chapter at the end of the volume, psychologist Liz Gulliford explains, ‘Cook and Dossett’s chapter offers an excellent illustration of the complexities around forgiveness as it is embedded in social structures and problematises any straightforward understanding of forgiveness as uncomplicatedly positive and helpful’ (p.243). The volume can be purchased from the Jessica Kingsley Publishers website.
