Personal Relationships Lab Research

We use a variety of research methods in our research, including experimental designs, questionnaire/survey methods, interviews, and written narratives.

Many consider forgiveness a virtue. Our research on forgiveness and unforgiveness adopts a more critical view of forgiveness in which we acknowledge that people do not always forgive.
