The Enright Process Model of Psychological forgiveness by Dr. Phil Sutton
Although Enright is a devout Christian, this model is essentially psychological - and philosophical - rather than religious or spiritual. The Enright model recognizes the religious mandate that to flourish spiritually, persons need to give - or request and receive - forgiveness when appropriate. In the service of this need, the model encourages those trying to forgive or be forgiven to use whatever spiritual and religious inspiration and resources are personally meaningful. But the model offers guidance for how anyone- whether their primary motivation is religious, moral or psychological - may cooperate with the fundamental, universally human, psychological process of forgiveness.
