As the Earth Warms: Techniques for Building Climate Resilience as Clinicians
August 11, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Offered through: Cascadia Training
My innovative and timely workshop will provide you with newfound tools and techniques to help build and nurture resiliency and healthy coping mechanisms as we all face ever-increasing climate challenges. These techniques are used with diverse populations in the United States and around the world to decrease climate-related anxiety, despair, hopelessness, depression, and grief, while increasing felt safety, hope, acceptance, and a deeper sense of what we can and cannot control and the ability to effectively deal with these feelings when they arise.
While most clients won’t come into therapy saying “I’m super anxious about climate change. What can I do?”, much of their despair, anxiety, grief, etc. may arise due to underlying and unconscious climate concerns.
You will learn how to help your clients acknowledge climate events without panic and despair; stay present in their bodies; strengthen community relationships; identify resources available for everyone; grieve the loss of the world they thought they and their children would live in; move through their feelings with acceptance and self-compassion—and hopefully, even grow and flourish with climate resiliency!
This workshop will offer you practical tools, techniques, suggestions, and resources that you can integrate into your life and practice to help your clients, yourself and your community.
