Psychotherapy for a Changing Planet
Description of the workshop:
Climate scientists estimate that 200 million Americans will touched by significant psychological distress from climate-related events in the upcoming years, and yet little attention is given to how to treat the profound mental health suffering that results from climate change. The U.N. sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported that “The physical and economic destruction (of climate change) surely boggles the mind but what is not being addressed are the human psychological consequences of all this devastation." Psychotherapy for a Changing Planet will introduce strategies and resources for mental health professionals, addressing key clinical themes specific to the psychological impact of climate change.
Behavioral Learning Objectives:
- Clinicians will be able to explain the growing relevance of climate change in psychotherapy theory and clinical practice.
- Clinicians will be able to assess climate-provoked distress in clients, and incorporate 2 to 3 effective approaches for building emotional resiliency.
- Clinicians will be able to list interventions for helping clients process emotions related to climate provoked anxiety, depression and grief and for building emotional resiliency.
- Clinicians will be able to provide reputable resources for furthering competency in climate psychology.
Ms. Leslie Davenport is a LMFT and author of the textbook 'Emotional Resiliency in the Era of Climate Change: A Clinician’s Guide'. She currently teaches this topic at both John F Kennedy University and as a learning module at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
