WORKSHOPS

Here you'll find information on different types of workshops offered.

For mental health professionals:
Eco-Resilience in the Era of Climate Change

The course aims to be an introduction to Ecopsychology and Climate Psychology for the Management of Eco-Emotions in Clinical Practice.

The training aims to provide a theoretical and scientific framework to understand the phenomenon of eco-emotions from both a clinical and ecopsychological perspective.

It has been specifically designed for psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychiatrists who wish to integrate specific skills to address mental health issues related to the environment.

It also aims to offer specific tools for assessment and intervention, including exercises derived from ecotherapy. Clinical cases will be discussed to present practical strategies that clinicians can adopt to align their practice with the climatic and ecological challenges of our times. Additionally, professionals will explore ways to contribute to strengthening eco-resilience in their communities and territories.

For
University Students:
Rooted Eco-Resilience-Fostering Connection with Nature Amidst Climate Emotions in College

The workshop designed exclusively for college students will delve into the realm of climate anxiety and climate emotions. In the initial part of our session, we explore what climate emotions are, what exacerbates them, and how they manifest in everyday life, shedding light on the emotional toll that environmental concerns can have on our well-being. Recognizing the significance of mental health in the face of ecological challenges, the workshop then transitions into practical strategies and coping skills for managing eco-anxiety, with a central focus on fostering connection with nature.

 

Experiential exercises allow participants to experience how the natural world can serve as a powerful ally in promoting emotional resilience in the face of environmental uncertainty.
 

Ways to facilitate continued practice of nature connection during the students’ semester abroad in
local green spaces and parks are also discussed.
