Bringing Compassion to Everyday Life with Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT)

Bringing Compassion to Everyday Life with Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) | Empathy Curriculum | Scoop.it
The Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program consists of six progressive steps.

Step 1

involves settling the mind and learning to focus it—skills essential for any form of reflective mental exercise – as well as learning to neutrally observe one’s own thoughts and emotions, the basic elements of mindfulness practice. This creates a solid foundation for steps 2 through 5, which comprise the actual compassion cultivation practices.

Steps 2

teaches participants how to cultivate loving-kindness and compassion for a loved one;

Step 3

helps the student develop loving-kindness and compassion for oneself;

Step 4

establishes the basis for compassion toward others by embracing shared common humanity and appreciating the deep interconnectedness of self and others. The phrase ‘just like me’ is used as a reminder that all people – even those who we appear to have nothing in common with - wish to be happy and free from suffering;

Step 5

deepens the ability to cultivate compassion toward others, including even those with whom we might have some negative experiences or difficulty;

Step 6

is an active compassion practice and involves visualizing transforming others’ pain and suffering and offering them one’s own happiness and joy

Activating Empathy: A Roadmap to Changemaker Classrooms - Course | Empathy Curriculum | Scoop.it

The ability to understand what someone is feeling” – that’s the textbook definition of empathy. But when put into practice, empathy means a whole lot more.


It means the ability to grasp the many sides of today’s complex problems and the capacity to collaborate with others to solve them; it means being as good at listening to the ideas of others as articulating your own; it means being able to lead a team one day, and participate as a team member the next.


In today’s rapidly changing world, empathy is critical to our success – at home, at school, and in the workplace


. By completing this free course, you will gain practical tips and ideas from 60 leading elementary schools, 21 social entrepreneurs, and leading experts from across the Ashoka network on how to instill empathy in children, preparing them for the world ahead

Ten approaches for enhancing empathy in health and human services cultures.

Ten approaches for enhancing empathy in health and human services cultures. | Empathy Curriculum | Scoop.it


 1. Improving Interpersonal Skills:

 2.  Audio- or Video-Taping of Encounters with Patients:

 3.  Exposure to Role Models:

 4.  Role Playing (Aging Games):

 5.  Shadowing a Patient (Patient Navigator):

 6.  Hospitalization Experiences:

 7.  The Study of Literature and the Arts:

 8.  Improving Narrative Skills:

 9.  Theatrical Performances:

 10.  Balint Method:

 

"Empathy has been considered as far too important to be taught only to health professionals (Ivey, 1971; 1974). Others have suggested that the capacity for empathy in people in general can serve as a foundation for building interpersonal relationships that have a buffering effect against stress and can be an essential step in conflict resolution (Kremer & Dietzen, 1991). As the author has noted "empathy can be viewed as a remedy for the psyche and soul of human kind...And may be it can serve as a means of achieving a global peace here, there, everywhere on earth." 

To enhance empathic understanding in health and human services, we need not only a broad reform in the health and human services education at undergraduate and graduate levels, but also in training the hospital staff, staff of the assisted-living environment, as well as health services administrators and executives. Clinical and organizational managers in health care institutions and human services organizations should develop well-designed and effective institutional-wide programs to retain, cultivate, and enhance a culture of empathic understanding based on approaches described in this article and other innovative approaches."

Recent MBM Grad Addresses Compassion Fatigue: Practical Applications for Nursing Professionals. Introducing Betsy Murphy | Saybrook University | Empathy Curriculum | Scoop.it
Murphy developed an experiential curriculum that concentrates on the use of self-care tools such as mindfulness meditation, movement, loving kindness meditation, relaxation training, and reflective journaling. It is Murphy’s hope that the restoring of these “qualities of heart” through participation in the specific mind-body practices will alleviate compassion fatigue. The format involves a weekend retreat in which the participants are away from the stresses of their professional and personal life and engage in the deep work of self- healing through experiential exercises and a better understanding of the condition of compassion fatigue.

Inquiring Mind: Compassion training speaks to such a profound need in the world. How did this secular program come about?


THUPTEN JINPA: A group from Stanford went to see His Holiness [Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama] to bring him a proposal for establishing a center for research and education in compassion and altruism. After a long discussion, His Holiness made a generous offer of quite a substantial donation to seed the program and said, " 

 

I have two requests:

 

Whatever science you do, make sure that it is impeccable from a scientific standard.

 

And secondly, whatever program you develop for teaching compassion, make sure it is completely secularized and universalizable.

Leading with Empathy in the 21st Century Course Description

Leading with Empathy in the 21st Century  Course Description | Empathy Curriculum | Scoop.it

There is a recent groundswell of interest in empathy; CEOs, best-selling authors, and international leaders have identified empathy as one of the most important leadership skills of the 21st century.


Generally understood as “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another,” empathy will play an increasingly important role in our interdependent and hyper-connected world. Whether your challenge is to build a collaborative team, become a skilled professional, or advocate effectively for social justice, empathy is a vital leadership capacity.

Empathy is not just about being “nice” and this unique course will delve into cutting-edge research from social psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Students will examine case studies of recent world events to develop an appreciation for empathy as a critical component of effective leadership. Additionally, you will examine scientific research on the role empathy plays in our day-to-day interactions and how empathy connects to sympathy, prosocial behaviors, stereotype reductions and morality. Furthermore this innovative course will incorporate acting, improvisation, and design-thinking to support students’ cultivation of their own empathetic awareness and interpersonal sensitivity.


The course will culminate with the development of an Action Plan that will promote empathy, compassion, and social harmony in students’ local communities, providing you with ample opportunity to further develop your empathy “muscle.
