Join Marina Cantacuzino (Founder, The Forgiveness Project) as she grapples with the difficult subject of forgiveness alongside Geoff Thompson and Sandra Barefoot. When Geoff was 12 he was abused by an adult he trusted, but decades later he confronted and forgave his abuser. Sandra runs The Forgiveness Project's RESTORE prison programme - a group based intervention that supports prisoners in their process of change towards desistance from crime.

Please note: The production of Downstate discusses and contains graphic descriptions of child abuse and rape, there is also reference to drug use and self-harm that some people may find distressing. This talk will therefore include discussion of some of these themes. If you require further information, contact details are provided in our online Help centre.
