Most importantly, the population for whom a strengths-based approach seems particularly invaluable is adolescents, who are at a critical development stage of making key choices about their future. Hence, identifying gratitude and forgiveness as a complete ‘package’ during this stage of life will equip adolescents with both intrapersonal and interpersonal resources which would aid at facilitating adaptive negotiations of the complex adult world.
