Welcome to my home page. I am a Psychology student at University of Canberra, currently enrolled in a fascinating unit called Motivation and Emotion. Check out the book we are co-writing, over at Motivation and Emotion 2011.

My chapter is about how people respond to adversity and suffering in various ways. Of special interest is the way people sometimes respond to traumatic events and situations by creating a new sense of meaning in their lives. These ideas are based in the existential philosophy of Viktor Frankl, and the area of positive psychology. It explores the ways that growth occurs in people's lives. I hope that it will add something of value to this area of research.
