Depression, anxiety and the resolution of relationship

how and when forgiveness and reconciliation can help people resolve

anger and emotional pain that often come with such experiences.
She regularly presents her research to colleagues at professional
conferences and has contributed chapters to two academic books

Dr. Malcolm did her undergraduate studies at Lakehead
