The Effects of Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) on Health-Care Workers
The main objective of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) on various aspects of burnout and job satisfaction in health-care workers. Speciﬁcally, this study sought to investigate whether CCT reduces work-related burnout, interpersonal conﬂict, as well as increases of mindfulness, compassion toward the self, fears of compassion, and job satisfaction scores.
The general conclusions of this study are that CCT may be helpful at improving several aspects of health in health-care providers, such as self-reported mindfulness, self-compassion, compassion toward others, and interpersonal conflict. The implications of this study are that this training may promote mental health resilience in health-care workers, improve patient care, and may be helpful in burnout prevention.
