AR and compassion

Hi, I am new to AR and am planning to use it to explore the concept of self-compassion with a group of women who have been sexually abused as children for my Doctorate research. I’m just wondering if anyone has heard of any other AR projects in this area? Also, would this be the correct forum for posting questions about the process as I progress with the project or is there somewhere more appropriate? I would be really interested in joining or starting up a support / study group if one exists – I am in Buckinghamshire but can travel. Many thanks! Jane

This paper about an action research study (using mindfulness as an intervention) tells of a team working in a palliative care unit. Hope it offers something useful as you find a support group: http://jab.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/09/24/0021886313502729 – Hilary Bradbury
