ACT Capstone Projects
An essential part of this program is a Capstone Project that each participant will create, deliver, and report back on during the course of the Applied Compassion Training.
Participants will begin designing these projects right from the start of the training and will be required to deliver them by Summer 2021, reporting back to the faculty by October 2021.
Fully completed Capstone Projects are a requirement in order to receive the certificate of completion from CCARE and ACA at the culmination of the program (November 2021).
Please discern wisely if this is achievable for you, and if you're unable to fulfill these requirements, please consider postponing your registration to a future ACT program.

It is recognized that the training may at times make participants feel vulnerable.
The APPLIED COMPASSION TRAINING™ (ACT) is not a therapeutic intervention for psycho-pathological disorders as defined in the DSM, and is not meant to be used as such. By completing this release and consent I assume all risk for any physical or mental consequences of participating in the course.
By signing this release I also specifically and expressly agree to hold harmless, indemnify and release the Applied Compassion Academy Faculty: Robert Cusick, Neelama Eyres, Monica Hanson; and the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) and Stanford University and each of their respective employees, partners, agents and associates from any and all liability for the results of the educational guidance that will be or has been provided.

Waiver of Dismissal
If at any point during the registration process or over the course of this 11-month training we determine that a student’s participation needs to be terminated, we reserve the right to dismiss that student from the program. If a student is dismissed, they will be refunded a pro-rated amount of their tuition within 30 days.
Venue Changes and other Restrictions
At this time, due to public health and travel guidelines, the ACT program will take place virtually online. Live participation is required at the three virtual immersive retreats online. If at any point during the training, public health and travel guidelines allow, an in-person retreat option will be made available on-site at Stanford University. If, due to a national or global crisis such as Covid-19, officials determine that group gatherings are not safe, or travel is restricted, the ACT training will still take place on the original dates, yet will be delivered virtually using online platform (such as Zoom and Canvas). We are unable to refund or forward tuition to a future cohort due to changes related to a crisis.
Full refunds (minus a $275 processing fee) may only be issued if your cancellation request is received by November 1st, 2020. No refunds will be made for cancellations received after November 1st. All refund requests must be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
