Arlington, VA (November 10, 2011) - The Institute for the Psychological Sciences (IPS), a distinct Catholic graduate school of psychology, is offering a new online seminar entitled "Interpersonal Hatred and Other Barriers to Forgiveness" taught by renowned professor and scholar Dr. Paul C. Vitz.

Presented on December 9th from 9:30 am to 11:30 am EST, this 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.

Although tailored primarily to the needs of mental health professionals, this seminar will provide useful information for priests, pastoral ministers and other interested individuals.

Dr. Vitz' teaching and extensive research focuses on the integration of Christian theology, especially Catholic anthropology, with psychology. Dr. Vitz earned his 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.

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.
