Abstract: Forgiveness is undoubtedly a healing virtue since it has a capacity to free an individual from being consumed by anger, check ones tendency toward cruelty, and opens doors to the restoration of broken relationships. A global increase in the tendency to forgive from adolescence to old age is note-worth-taking. Adolescents face a lot of issues that invite the role of forgiveness in their subjective wellbeing. The present study assessed the effects of an intervention programme on the virtue of Forgiveness. A sample of 40 adolescents (20 males- 20 females) were studied using a personal data sheet, Transgression- Related Interpersonal Motivations Scale and Trait Forgiveness Scale by Berry, Worthington, OConnor, Parrott, & Wade (2005). A pre-test and post test administration was used. A t-test analysis indicated very highly significant differences in the sample group with regards to Forgiveness measures indicating the positive influences of the intervention module.
