Arlington, Virginia -- There is a difference between anger and hatred, according to Dr. Paul C. Vitz.  The renowned professor and senior scholar at the Institute for the Psychological Sciences (IPS) will be discussing this difference  and how to come to forgiveness  during an upcoming online seminar sponsored by IPS.

 Dr. Vitz will present the “Interpersonal Hatred and Other Barriers to Forgiveness” seminar December 9 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am EST.

Dr. Vitz’ teaching and extensive research is focused on the integration of Christian theology, especially Catholic anthropology, with psychology.  Dr. Vitz has a Ph.D. from Stanford University, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan.  He served as a professor of Psychology at New York University for many years prior to joining the faculty at IPS.

Although tailored primarily to the needs of mental health professionals, the seminar will provide useful information for priests, pastoral ministers and other interested individuals. The course will explain the origin of interpersonal hatred, why people like and hold onto it, and its long-term consequences.  It will also offer some practical applications for helping a client overcome hatred.

The course is co-sponsored by the National Institute for Relationship Enhancement and provides two CE credits. The cost to attend is $50 or $45 for early registration by Nov. 20, 2011.

Attendance is limited.  Click here to register.  For more information, contact the IPS Distance Learning Office at (703) 416-1441, x129.
