What (Really) Goes Into Forgiveness That Works with expert Dr. Shawne Duperon

Listen to “What (Really) Goes Into Forgiveness That Works with expert Dr. Shawne Duperon” on Spreaker.

WOWZA! I was blown away by where my chat with Dr. Shawne Duperon, the founder of Project Forgive and one of the world’s leading experts on forgiveness went. That’s right! Blown away…

And I am thrilled to welcome to The Autoimmune Hour my friend Dr. Shawne. In addition to Project Forgive, she founded ShawneTV; she is a winner of Six EMMY® awards, 28 EMMY® nominations, and her conflict resolution tool, The Apology (You’ll Never Receive)TM garnered the honor of a Nobel Peace Prize Nomination. 


Why the topic of forgiveness? Current studies have linked past traumas to playing a part in specific immune dysfunction. It is an accepted standard that too much stress adds to inflammation—a common component in autoimmune diagnoses. And general population research shows prolonged anger, hostility, and bitterness are linked to health risks like depression and heart disease. So, in our time together, Dr. Shawne shares many “juicy” thought-provoking truths and ideas, including 
• Why forgiveness isn’t what most people think, and what it really is;
• Tips on knowing yourself, your needs, staying present, and letting go;
• The five stages of forgiveness (Hint, ‘forgive and forget’ isn’t one of them);
• Triggers, boundaries, and how the words we use can change outcomes,  
Plus, her world-famous conflict resolution tool “The-Apology-(You’ll-Never-Receive)TM” and much more.

More about our Guest: With a Ph.D. in Good Gossip Theory, Six EMMY® awards, 28 EMMY® nominations, and an organic social media reach topping 100 million per month, Dr. Shawne Duperon of ShawneTV is considered to be one of the most innovative and influential consultants and trainers on communication today. As a recognized TV producer, Dr. Shawne strengthens organizations with compelling and strategic messaging for Prime Time. She never imagined when she produced a 5-minute video on forgiveness, it would go viral,  attract the attention of worldwide media coverage, inspire global leaders such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, or even garner the honor of a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. And that’s precisely what happened.

Dr. Shawne continues to educate corporations, universities, governments, and entrepreneurs, on how to effectively communicate to increase engagement, retention, and strategic disruption in the workplace. Her progressive livestreams and virtual facilitations on forgiveness in leadership amplify inclusion, respect, and engagement. Dr. Shawne also consistently shares her journey of forgiveness after being molested as a child. She models a courageous ability to forgive the unforgivable and shares that ability by developing curriculum through evidence-based research and innovative tools.
