Dispelling the Clourds.
Sept. 24 webinar: Wilma Derksen's experiment in forgivenessMeet Winnipeg author at free CCCA webinar - Thursday, September 24, 2020, noon CT
Wilma Derksen is known across North America for her work addressing the needs of victims and offenders and promoting the issue of restorative justice. She is also known for living an experiment in forgiveness following the 1985 murder of her daughter.
A person of faith, when she was faced with the haunting presence of an overwhelming desire for revenge Wilma dared to choose a counter-intuitive way of dealing with it: Forgive. When her controversial choice hit the headlines, she was forced to defend it, redefine it, explore it, experiment with it, live it, fight with it and eventually accept it.
Wilma has just published a new book about her journey titled Dispelling the Clouds. A Desperate Social Experiment. Join Wilma on Sept. 24, noon CT (1 PM ET) to hear her talk about her new book, her journey of forgiveness, the media response and reaction to her decision, and how communicators can be sensitive when telling the stories of people who have survived trauma.
