Presented by Sharp Memorial Hospital plus

Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an eight-week course designed for Sharp physicians, employees and volunteers as well as health care and service-oriented professionals from the community. The goal of this training is to provide a practical framework for developing compassion for oneself and others. Cultivating compassion may lead to improved mindfulness, communication, resilience to stress and enhanced feelings of well-being.

The course was developed by the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at the Stanford University School of Medicine. In-class activities include lectures, guided compassion cultivation exercises and group discussions. The class is cumulative so that each session builds on the previous sessions.

Following this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply learned compassion skills in everyday life
  • Cite at least three scientific findings that support the effectiveness of compassion training
  • Describe the elements of compassion
  • Describe three sources of resistance to the cultivation of self-compassion
  • Establish a daily compassion practice
