CCT Research

Preliminary research suggests that CCT can improve compassion for oneself, for others, and being the recipient of compassion (Jazaieri et al., 2013). Furthermore, CCT has been shown to improve affect, emotion regulation, and mindfulness (Jazaieri et al., 2014), increase feelings of calm and acceptance (Jazaieri et al., 2017), and reduce some forms of mind wandering while increasing caring behaviors for oneself and others (Jazaieri et al., 2016). The CCT program was also recently featured in the Wall Street Journal.
