FORGIVENESS THERAPY FOR SALEMBA PENITENTIARY INMATES
Forgiveness is defined as "motivation to reduce the desire to avoid and take revenge on someone who has hurt or offended him or her, and to increase the meeting between two parties to solve a problem if it is considered safe, wise, or possible to do" (Worthington et al., 2000 : 229). Salemba Prison inmates are prisoners or Penitentiary Guards, or they can be still in the judicial process and has not been found guilty or not by the judge. They are serving a sentence for a crime they have committed. From the data in various media, a person commits a crime caused by various things, one of which is because of revenge. This revenge comes from anger that is fostered continuously and encouraged someone to do violence. Therefore, a positive effort is needed to be able to lead this anger and revenge, become units of behavior through the process of forgiveness. Therefore, forgiveness therapy psycho-education is an important thing that needs to be done to Salemba prison prisoners.
