CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) for Therapists, Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, and other Healthcare Providers

CBCT® has helped many healthcare providers to gain increased resilience to stress and to cultivate a more sustainable sense of compassion for oneself and for others.

CBCT® is a structured sequence of analytical meditation exercises designed to strengthen mental stability, deepen awareness and understanding of thoughts and emotions, and support the growth of our inherent capacity to care for others. The aim of the practices is to generate and sustain a robust, inclusive, and warm-hearted responsiveness, while protecting from the side effects of empathetic distress, burnout, and vicarious or secondary trauma that are common for healthcare professionals. Previous meditation experience is not required to take this training.
