Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health

CCSH™ (Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health) is a collaboration between Spiritual Health at the Woodruff Health Sciences Center and the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics, both of Emory University. CCSH™ is a program to bolster the well-being, resilience, and compassion of healthcare patients and staff.

CCSH™ augments spiritual health education and best practices with CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training), a program developed at the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics. CCSH™ interventions are delivered by spiritual care professionals trained in both CBCT® and ACPE: The Standard in Spiritual Care and Education.
