As an academic director I am very happy to invite you to apply for the 3-week UvA Summer School: “Peaceful Mind: Mindfulness and Compassion-Based Interventions”. This summer programme provides an overview on the topic of emotion regulation and contemplative practices such as mindfulness- and compassion-based interventions, as a part of H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions founded project (Peaceful Mind: 656333).
For more details: uva.nl/summer-mindfulness or firstname.lastname@example.org
Net4Mobility (an international network of National Contact Points (NCPs) of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) selected Peaceful Mind project as the best success story for MSCA Individual Fellowship. They produced a video to demonstrate the impact of this great grant on my research career and showcase the project.
Below you can find the results of their nice work!

Today it has been 1 week since we started our new data collection in NEMO, and we already have 100 participants. This time we evaluate the effectiveness of different emotion regulation strategies on sadness with children between 9-14 years old.
Thank you to all the participants and NEMO Science Live for making our research alive, and to the great research team who is doing an awesome job!
Dr. Paul Ekman, best known for his research of nonverbal behavior such as gestures and facial expressions, together with his daughter Dr. Eve Ekman created an Atlas of Emotions: an online interactive emotion education tool. The idea of the project started after Dr. Ekman and the Dalai Lama conversed about the origins of emotions. Dalai Lama asked whether Dr. Ekman could create a map of the emotions, in order to provide a deeper understanding of our emotions.
The introductory page present the Atlas of Emotions as “a visual tool to build your emotion vocabulary. The goal is to increase choice in what we become emotional about and how we respond.” Have a look and learn a little bit more about yourself! I did.
Today it is our last day in NEMO. It was an exiting and intensive adventure! Our experiment was visited by 183 children and their parents. Many thanks to them!
Special thanks to the NEMO team, managed by Diana and Lucas, as well as Great Team of Students who made this data collection possible: Annebelle, Astrid, Laura, Maud, Renske, Yara. Ladies- you are the best!
We hope to see the results published by the end of this year, but you can always check on NEMO Science live website if there is some more news: https://www.sciencelive.nl/
We are coming back to NEMO in August 2017 for another 2 weeks to test some new hypothesis on emotion regulation in children. If you are a student and would like to join the adventure for a short internship just let me know!
