On Wisconsin Magazine highlights Enright’s exploration of forgiveness

March 21, 2013

The groundbreaking forgiveness work of Robert Enright, a UW-Madison professor of educational psychology, is featured in the current issue of On Wisconsin Magazine.

And as an added bonus, the report also highlights research on the topic of dignity by alumna Donna Hicks.

A lead-in to the On Wisconsin articles notes that “the scholarship of Robert Enright and Donna Hicks is like the branches of a family tree. Enright, an educational psychology professor renowned for his exploration into the role of forgiveness, was Hicks’ adviser while she worked on her doctoral degree at UW–Madison. As Enright continued his groundbreaking work on forgiveness, Hicks began studying the equally complex and emotional topic of dignity. While their work may have taken root at different times, their subjects are unquestionably connected within the context of human experience. On Wisconsin talks to this teacher and his student, now peers, both of whom demonstrate a willingness to examine the dark places within us, and a commitment to bring them into the light."
