My name is Kimberly Carrière and I am a PhD student at McGill University in Clinical Psychology. My research in the Health Psychology Laboratory involves examining the development and evaluation of programs grounded in eastern philosophies on weight loss. I am particularly interested in exploring the effectiveness of mindfulness and self-compassion in promoting healthy eating and exercise behaviors in obese and overweight individuals. One of my goals is to design targeted behavioral weight loss interventions using mindfulness that not only support weight loss, but facilities its maintenance over time.
