The Mindful Self-Compassion Project

Purpose of the Study

For many of the women coming to Bravestone Centre, they are not only fleeing an abusive intimate relationship, they are dealing with long-term complex health issues and unresolved trauma. In recognition of these experiences, we saw the addition of mindfulness and self-compassion training as key elements to help enhance their current individual and group therapy at Bravestone and to aid in their general functioning and mental health. The aim of this project was to assess the efficacy, fit, accessibility, and feasibility of a Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program offered as part of the ongoing services for the women residents (clients) at Bravestone Centre.

Developing a Framework for Strengthening Families: Phase I

Purpose of the Study

In recognition that attachment between mothers and their children was impaired by experiences of family violence, the Bravestone Centre implemented the Family Attachment Program as a pilot project. Prior to seeking permanent funding for the program, the Centre wanted to determine if the program was being well received by participants and whether the framework for this program is effective in meeting participants’ needs. The purpose of this study was to gather information needed to develop a framework for the Bravestone Centre programs, particularly for the newly developed Family Attachment Program.
