It’s to the students’ advantage to attend all eight classes in order to get the most out of the course, as each class involves lectures and group discussions that are key components of the training process.
If you know ahead of time that you will need to miss one class or more, then it’s advised to wait to register for a course at a time when you’ll likely be able to attend all sessions. Having said this, our instructors are familiar with and understanding of the unpredictability of modern life and will help orient you to any materials if you do miss a class.
If you’re an enrolled student and know you will miss the first class in advance, please contact the instructor by emailing CompassionEducation@stanford.edu.
