COURSE DESCRIPTION: Please read more detailed information about this course. You are expected to practice a daily recorded meditation (15-30 min. daily) along with weekly assigned daily life practices throughout the course. Each week’s recordings of the guided meditations and supplemental materials are provided online. It is highly recommended that you miss no more than one class as this is a sequential course that builds from each successive week.
PARTICIPATE IN A SPECIAL COMPASSIONATE LEADER RESEARCH STUDY: Mindfulness-based meditation practices have been shown to improve employee well-being, workplace attention, engagement, and general happiness. More advanced contemplative practices, like Stanford’s Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT), are hypothesized to improve areas of social and emotional intelligence including; leader self-awareness, decision making, situational awareness, strategic planning, pro-social compassionate and empathetic behavior, and multi-cultural and interpersonal communication (see Harvard Business Review, Jun 2016). A study is being conducted as part of an Industrial and Organizational Psychology Ph.D. dissertation exploring the effect of Stanford University’s contemplative CCT training on self-awareness and overall EI in a population of organizational leaders. If you are interested in this study, you can read more in these two documents: Compassionate Leader Study: Overview for Businesses and Compassionate Leader Study: Business Outcomes. Detailed information about eligibility will be given at the first class meeting.
CEs: 16 CEs are available for Psychologists, LCSWs, MFTs and Nurses – an additional fee of $35 is required for administration costs. Please indicate if you wish to receive CEs on the registration form. You must attend ALL classes to receive the CEs.
REGISTRATION: Registration is NOW OPEN until the class is full – class size is limited. If there is demand, a second class may be offered on a different day of the week.
