Amy is a Research Associate at the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development and the former Project Director of the John Templeton Foundation (JTF)-funded study, The Role of Spiritual Development in Growth of Purpose, Generosity, and Psychological Health in Adolescence. She received a B.A. degree in Psychology from Clark University, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Applied Child Development from Tufts University. Her work centers on the development of love and compassion toward the whole of humanity – what is known as great love-compassion – and, in particular, on the formative effects of childbirth and early child care practices on such development. Amy also supports families throughout the childbearing year and beyond as a postpartum doula and certified lactation counselor.
