We hear it often, "How can I forgive myself for what I've done?"

In this program, you will find the answer.

If you wonder if guilt a good thing or a bad thing, it's both.

People who never feel guilt are scary. Think sociopaths or psychopaths. 

People who feel overwhelming guilt are miserable. They can't function well in life.

Sometimes a person involved in something that violates his/her beliefs and values feels guilt for a while...then goes through a period of feeling little to no guilt...and finally feels strong self-recrimination, sadness, and a compulsion to avoid those s/he hurt.

If you struggle with guilt, or if someone you love struggles with guilt, this program is for you.

In this program, Dr. Joe Beam discusses why we feel guilty, why that is a good thing...but also how guilt can become a cage that makes life miserable. He will explain how to deal with guilt in effective ways. He will show you the path to find peace again and to resume life in its fullness. He will show you how to forgive yourself. And how to find forgiveness from others.

If you wish, you may call during the program to ask questions, make comments, or even disagree. Call during the live program beginning at 9 p.m. Central time, Tuesday, January 17. The number is (646) 378-0424.
