Director, Contemplative-Based Resilience (CBR) Project

The Contemplative Based Resilience Project (CBR) was created in response to the need to address the chronic and acute stress that frontline professionals experience. In the US, the CBR Project offers trainings to society’s “unsung heroes” –the social workers, community workers, legal professionals, hotline staff, and others providing support to the homeless; survivors of domestic and sexual violence; victims of child abuse; immigrants in need; the chronically poor; and the under-served communities facing crises.

The CBR International Project focuses on delivery to international aid workers, humanitarian rights advocates and journalists, among others. The CBR curriculum is designed to offer practical tools to those who work in highly stressful environments and are at risk themselves of experiencing enormous strain and burnout. The CBR Project teaches the ABCs of resilience: Awareness, Balance, and Connection with trainings and coaching that provide practical skills and tools to maintain mental health and well-being. CBR provides an integrative, contemplative approach to managing stress which supports front line workers while reducing burnout and empathetic distress among workers. Grounded in cutting-
edge, evidence-based research, the CBR Project was designed by experts in trauma care, humanitarian aid work, psychology, meditation, mindful body work, and educational pedagogy.

To help lead this effort, we are recruiting a full-time Director to join our Contemplative-Based Resilience Project team.
