Personal and organizational lives create inevitable challenges and suffering, so we bring two linked sets of personal and workplace concerns together in our Stress, Burnout and Compassion Training and Certificate Program, stress and burnout, with a series of exercises to build compassion.

Compassion offers a interpersonal opportunity to take action in the face of suffering, so we emphasize behavioral action to address life challenges and engaged empathic response in this course.

Research Based

Our own research has found that a fear of receiving compassion from themselves, from others and offering compassion can have a negative impact on interpersonal skills and is linked to stress, anxiety and depression in individuals. Martin et. al. (2014, 2017)

The Stress, Burnout and Compassion Training and Certificate Program is designed in the most engaging way, with the Brightsity platform using cutting-edge technology, clinical/social psychological tools, as well as psychometric evaluation to measure impact in compassion and self compassion, stress, anxiety, and depression. Importantly, we also measure occupational outcomes to ensure we can show a direct relationship between compassion and professional outcomes.
