CompassionPower was founded on the belief that individuals and societies are more powerful when compassionate than when angry or aggressive and that emotional problems arise whenever people violate their deeper values.
The first CompassionPower program began in 1988, to treat domestic violence and child abuse offenders. Using a new technology of emotional transformation, the program greatly improved the personal and community behavior of court-ordered offenders. CompassionPower programs quickly expanded to treat non-violent but unhappy relationships, with equal success.
Emotional transformation skill allows subjects to focus on healing and improving. The result is a much stronger individual with the enhanced sense of self that comes from relating compassionately to others and remaining true to your deeper values.
Steven Stosny, PhD, is the founder of CompassionPower. A renowned author and media consultant on relationships, anger, and abuse, Dr. Stosny grew up in a violent home. He learned the healing power of compassion from his abused mother.
