Resumen

VILLA GOMEZ, Juan David. Forgiveness and reconciliation: A psychosocial view from a nonviolence perspective. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.131-157. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000100007.

This article examines the importance of forgiveness to peace-building in prolonged armed conflict, such as is lived Colombia, and its powerful effect on subjective transformations and dignity recovery of political violence victims, from a nonviolence point of view.  Several research and theory processes show evidence of the strong relationship between memory narrative, emotional mechanisms and political interests to maintain war and violence in complex contexts.  It is explained  how group meetings, inclusive memory recovery and collective support therapy could become transforming scenarios of this logic to build a nonviolence culture of social reconciliation and subjective forgiveness that will lead to social change and overcome violent conflicts. This article includes examples of experiences in Colombia researched by the author, bringing about testimonies of some participants in these investigations. It concludes with recommendations that could be used in individual and group psycho-social interventions in order to rebuild the social web in contexts of violence and armed conflict.

Palabras clave : Forgiveness; reconciliation; victims; armed conflict; transitional justice.
