Brooke D. Lavelle is cofounder and president of the Courage of Care Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing Sustainable Compassion Training programs and support to individuals and communities in education, health care, and other areas of social service.
Her academic work focuses on the confluence of Buddhist contemplative theory and cognitive science, as well as the cultural contexts that shape the transmission, reception, and secularization of Buddhist contemplative practices in America.
At Emory University, Dr. Lavelle served as a lead instructor for several studies examining the efficacy of Cognitively-Based Compassion Training (CBCT), and has helped to create and adapt CBCT for children and adolescents in Atlanta’s foster-care system.
She has developed and taught yoga and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs for a variety of clinical populations and serves on the board of the Foundation for Active Compassion and as a consultant at the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.
