There is a substantial body of research that indicates that professionals treating traumatized or overly stressed students, clients or patients may suffer from burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, or secondary traumatic stress and that those who are most empathic are most vulnerable.
“In the role of witness to acts of violence, the [carer] feels, at times, overwhelmed and experiences, to a lesser degree, the same terror, rage and despair.”—Adapted from (Herman, 2001).
CBCT® can help support you in continuing your work AND aims to buffer you from the deleterious impacts of vicarious trauma. This research based, educational program is designed to cultivate compassion for self and others and shield you from compassion fatigue. Using systematic and analytical meditation, the program aims to increase your resiliency, help you feel more connected to others, and ultimately provide you with an overall sense of well-being.
The program was designed by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, Ph.D. at Emory University’s Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics. It is for any and all or no faith based belief systems. It is being researched and taught worldwide and in its global efforts it is helping create compassionate, peaceful and equitable solutions to our century’s most pressing problems—thus creating the conditions that will allow each of us to thrive.
The “cost of caring” doesn’t have to be a sacrificial price, when we prepare ourselves for our work with CBCT®.
