Workshop: Building emotional resilience for effective climate justice

Our internal ecosystems and external ecosystems are inextricably connected and constantly influencing each other. As we deeply understand our inner landscapes through a trauma-informed lens, it equips us to be more effective in creating a safer, healthier, more just world. This daylong workshop includes experiential practices with tools to work with eco-anxiety and grief that can be shared in a range of settings for both individual and community care to support systemic change.

·       Trainer: Sousan Abadian, Ph.D.
