Are you a self-proclaimed change agent?

Have you been ready to act?

Do you keep waiting for the right time?

Let’s take action today to create a PEACEFUL world!

It’s common to get so focused on the business of life that we forget what is important. Has your life lost its sparkle? Learn how to regain your passion for life and add value to the lives of others.

The third course in the CWB 2020 series is related to the application of behavioral science to improve your social and community life.

The three books on which this course is based are:

(1) The Nurture Effect

(2) Beyond Addiction

(3) Buddha's Brain

The information and skills learned during this course:

  • Effective Dissemination of Science
  • Substance and Domestic Abuse
  • Applied Behavioral Neuroscience
  • Strategic Community Planning
  • RelatedEthical Obligations
  • Diagnostic Feedback

In this 9-week course, you will learn a set of skills related to improving your social and community life and earn 18 Type-2 "Learning" CEUs (12 general, 3 ethics, and 3 supervision). The skills are drawn from the work of Tony Biglan (The Nurture Effect), Jeffery Foote (Beyond Addiction), and Rick Hanson (Buddha's Brain), and you will learn how to systematically apply the lessons you learn to accomplish your social goals, in the service of your values, on the path toward your dream life.

UPDATE: Until further notice, our courses and lessons as they were originally designed are on hold. We have pivoted to "Action Circles" during which we will be coming together to share our stories, learn from others, and collaborate to develop actionable solutions to the issues our world faces. Please visit our sister site to register for the weekly Zoom gatherings that start on 7/11/2020.
