I have broad research interests in compassion, but specifically I examine factors that facilitate and inhibit compassionate responding. I also examine the clinical effectiveness of compassion focused interventions, specifically in how they help with self-criticism and shame.

Why I support the Compassion Coalition

I can think of no better pursuit than to strive to make the world a more compassionate place
