Project: We are currently examining the role of self-compassion, cultivated via the established Loving-Kindness Meditation, in the context of families.

Dr Kirby is supervising two Honours students from the University of Queensland where we are examining the effect of the Loving-Kindness Meditation on psychological well-being in two experimental groups: (1) with parents of young children, and (2) with young adults still living at the family home.
