Pilot Study on CEB
The Fetzer Foundation funded a CEB pilot study that took place from September 2002 to May 2003. An integrated 5-week training program was developed following a series of meetings with experts in emotion, psychotherapy and contemplative meditation.
The next phase of the CEB project involved a randomized controlled clinical trial, comparing the integrated training to a control condition to determine the efficacy of the training and its impact over a 6-month follow-up period. The aims of the trial were to determine if the CEB training: 1) reduces emotional experiences destructive to others, specifically, hostility, contempt and denigration; 2) reduces emotional experiences destructive to self, specifically, shame, depression and anxiety; 3) promotes empathy and compassion towards intimates and others; and 4) promotes physiological health, as measured by changes in autonomic nervous system activity, neuroendocrine hormone levels, and immune function.
