"I am thrilled to announce a much needed offering in the world of compassion!

This brand-new 11-month Applied Compassion Training will equip you with the skill-set you need to become an exemplar of compassion in real-world settings. The training is comprehensive and uses evidence-based approaches to teaching that ensure you are

fully prepared to lead, facilitate, and model applied compassion in your professional workplaces, communities and with your families and loved ones.


In the Applied Compassion Training, you will develop competency and skills in the areas of applied compassionate leadership, communication, collaboration, coaching and facilitation, as well as in your professional and personal relationships.


This ACT program is a must- take training that addresses our need for an applied compassionate response to a broad spectrum of challenging real-world situations.


The Applied Compassion Training is for anyone who wants to be a change agent.


Graduates of this program are going to change the world!" ~Dr. James Doty
