Classes tend to fill quickly, as they are limited to 30 people each for optimal in-class participation. We recommend you register when registration first opens for the best chance of getting into your desired class. If a class is full, please feel free to register for the waitlist. CCARE staff will contact those registered on the waitlist in chronological order if a seat becomes available. There is no charge to register for the waitlist; however, credit card information is required to hold your spot.
If you are an LCSW, MFT, RN, or licensed psychologist, you can earn 16 CEUs for your Compassion Cultivation Training class for a fee of $45. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to arrive on time, attend every class meeting, sign in and out at each class, and submit a separate course evaluation form at the end of the final class. No partial CEU credit is available if any class time is missed.
