Gratitude Research

Big Question: Is gratitude the parent of all virtues?

The Jubilee Centre has undertaken significant research into the virtue of gratitude. An Attitude for Gratitude is the largest ever UK study into the public perception of gratitude. The Centre has also undertaken work in the community and considered links between gratitude and service.

More recently, the Centre has extended its focus on gratitude by examining the effects of teaching interventions on comprehensions of gratitude and related virtues.
