The Cultivating Compassion series gives leaders a powerful tool to build a culture of compassion and well-being. When combined, our three DVD-based training programs become a transformational course that produces lasting behavioral change in the way people interact with one another. The result is a culture of compassion in which staff and patients thrive.
