|Research shows empathy can give rise to personal distress or compassion. Which one is showing up for you?
Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an educational program designed to help you reverse the effect of empathic distress, or negative feelings, and instead increase positive emotions, such as feelings of love and affiliation. Developed at Stanford University Medical School’s CCARE by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers, compassion training can help overcome the empathic distress that some people encounter in their profession or personal lives, improving your resilience, and ultimately, helping you feel more connected to others, providing an overall sense of well-being.
Tuesday evenings, January 17 – March 7, 6:00pm – 8:00pm. The cost is $300.00. Scholarships and income-based reduced fee options are available. Visit the CCFW website for details and to register.
