CBCT® Supports Healthcare Workers

Since 2014 CBCT® has been taught to faculty, staff, and students at the Emory School of Medicine.  In light of COVID-19 and sudden postponement of clinical training, the school’s leadership requested a special online training. Twice weekly, these future healthcare heroes are meeting virtually to develop the inner skills to support their resilience and compassion.
