Seeking Participants for Study on Forgiveness and End-of-Life Communication

Participants are needed for a research study on forgiveness and end-of-life communication.


This research project hopes to learn about such conversations and issues, and how they have affected people and their relationships. 


This study will recruit 15 participants. If you would like to tell me your story of forgiveness, and are at least 18 years old, I invite you to take part in an interview. The interview can be conducted in person at a location of your choosing, over the phone or via video call. Participation will take between 1-2.5 hours of your time. 


Participation in this study may benefit you personally. Having the opportunity to talk about your forgiveness issues and conversations with loved ones can help you process that experience. It can also provide you with a deeper understanding of how the experience has affected you and your relationship with your family member or loved one. Overall, we hope to gain information about how people communicate about forgiveness in the end-of-life context. Such information will benefit science and society in general, as research on this topic is currently limited and we don’t understand much about how people communicate in this context and about this topic.
