CBCT® (developed by Professor Lobsang Tenzin Negi of Emory University) has been shown to reduce stress levels, improve overall health and well-being, and increase a sense of connection with others.
CBCT® incorporates a series of meditation techniques to strengthen mental stability, deepen awareness and understanding of thoughts and emotions, and support the growth of our inherent capacity to care for others.
The aim of CBCT® is to provide a secure ground for maintaining a genuine connection and responsiveness to others while protecting against the all-too-frequent effects of empathetic distress, burnout, and secondary trauma common among those in care-giving professions and for parents.
CBCT® is currently being taught in 16 Atlanta, Georgia public schools as a component of a highly successful teacher retention program, and has also been taught in school systems in Colorado, Illinois, and Mexico City.
Meditation experience is recommended for this training.
