New Lab Preprint on Character and Self-Compassion is Available

We are excited to share that a publication based on some of the work central to this lab–work on the benefits of valued character traits like hopefulness and gratitude–is now online for free public access at the PsyArxiv public depository ( This manuscript was organized in collaboration with post-baccalaureate colleague Joshua Perlin.

This paper is currently under review by peer researchers for consideration with a scientific journal, and while there are likely to be some changes given ongoing feedback, we are thrilled to share work that may be relevant to the ways adolescents and young adults relate to themselves and the world in adaptive ways.
