Holly Hatton-Bowers, assistant professor of child, youth and family studies, is working with researchers in Brazil to adapt compassion and mindfulness-based programs developed in the U.S. to support caregivers in Brazil. This research aims to cultivate resilience, compassion, and kindness among caregivers to improve well-being and increase capacity to deliver high-quality care to young children. Through the partnership, Hatton-Bowers has established relationships with several Brazilian colleagues interested in using these strategies in education and medical settings. Learn more at
