Caritas Coach Education Program (CCEP)

CCEP  is a unique six-month educational program offered by the Watson Caring Science Institute (WCSI), that is structured as an experiential, aesthetic, personal, ethical, and intellectual journey designed to prepare clinicians, educators, caregivers, and leaders with knowledge, experience, and informed practices of Caring Science and the Theory of Human Caring. Participants will learn how to synthesize, integrate, and translate the philosophy, values, ethics, and theory of Caring Science into authentic Caritas-Ways-of-Being for self and others. A combination of innovative teaching-learning methodologies, self-reflection, authentic dialogue, and ‘teachings’ and wisdom traditions are explored to assist the participants in living out Heart-Centered-Caritas Relation-Modeling Practices for self, other and systems.
