The Five Languages of Apology
Author: Gary Chapman, Jennifer Thomas
"I said I was sorry!" Real life involves real people who make real mistakes. Sometimes saying “I’m sorry” just isn’t enough. The need for apologies impacts all human relationships. The good news is that you can learn the art of apology. Through their research and interaction with hundreds of individuals, counselor Dr. Jennifer Thomas and Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the revolutionary The Five Love Languages, have discovered five fundamental aspects or “languages” of an apology: Expressing regret ("I am sorry."), accepting responsibility ("I was wrong"), making restitution ("What can I do to make it right?"), genuinely repenting ("I'll try not to do that again."), and requesting forgiveness ("Will you please forgive me?"). In The Five Languages of Apology, you will learn how to recognize your own primary apology language while speaking the languages of those you love. Understanding and applying the five languages of an apology will greatly enhance all of your relationships.
