On behalf of CCARE (The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education) I am pleased to announce our new 10-month
Applied Compassion Training Program.

Dr. James Doty

founder & director of stanford university's center for compassion 

and altrusim research

and education (CCARE).

I’ve personally experienced  the power of compassion as a physician, philanthropist, educator and global leader. As such, I am pleased to announce the launch of a new

Applied Compassion Training (ACT)

being offered in collaboration with CCARE,

the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. 

Are you ready to bring applied compassion into the world in a tangible way?

Our training will equip you with the skills and tools you need to be an Ambassador of Applied Compassion in real-world settings. 

Applied Compassion promotes understanding, heightens resiliency, and increases collaboration among groups, teams, families, partners, and communities.

Overview of our certificate program 

Training Objective: 

This Applied Compassion Training will prepare you to become a motivating force for Applied Compassion: someone who embodies a high level of mastery and expertise in facilitating a compassionate response in real-world settings. You will leave this training fully equipped with the skill-set you need to effectively create and sustain transformative change.

Upon completion of this training, you will receive a Certificate of Completion through ACA (Applied Compassion Academy) and CCARE (The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research & Education) at Stanford University. This training and the certificate provide you with the credibility, skills, resources, network and experience needed to become an Educator, Facilitator, Consultant, and Ambassador of Applied Compassion. ACT knows, as do you, that one solution does not fit all situations. The ACT program will equip you with the toolkit necessary to apply compassionate responses and solutions within the organizations, communities, and institutions in which you live and work.


Training Description: 
Over the course of this 10 month training, we will meet for 3 in-person trainings. These on-site workshop retreats are designed to be highly immersive and experiential and are scheduled in the beginning of the program, mid-way through, and at the end of the training. 


In between the live trainings, we will have two online Zoom sessions per month.  The first session will be a didactic/practice session which will combine teaching and experiential processes associated with that month’s module.  The second session will be an opportunity to bring questions, challenges, and real-world issues into a smaller group and receive direct coaching from Robert and Neelama and other guest subject-matter experts.

Capstone Projects (CP):

An essential part of becoming an Educator, Facilitator, Consultant, and Ambassador of Applied Compassion is to be a representative of compassion, bringing it into your workplaces and professional lives and into your personal and family daily life relationships .  A key component of completing the training will include an ACT Capstone Project (CP) that each trainee will design, execute, and present with the support of their Ambassador Teams, along with our support and guidance. 

Ambassador Teams:

As you move through the journey of creating and developing your CP, you’ll be assigned to an Ambassador Team where you can give and receive support to other trainees as they work to develop their individual CP.   Your Ambassador Team will be a community to which you can bring your ideas, discuss design concepts, support each other to refine your projects, and get feedback on your CP over our ten months together.
