Telluride Conference: The Science of Compassion: Origins, Measures and Interventions – July 18-22, 2012

There has never been an international conference dedicated to scientific inquiry into compassion from multiple methodological perspectives. An adaptive pro-social emotion and a virtuous trait broadly condoned across humanistic and spiritual traditions, compassion has only recently gained the attention of science.

 

The Science of Compassion: Origins, Measures and Interventions conference will provide an unprecedented opportunity for expert and aspiring researchers to review theoretical foundations, study approaches, data, and compassion-training approaches, to exchange and debate ideas, and to realize consensus towards conceptually aligned, synergistic approaches to demonstrating empirically how compassion can improve public health.
