Workshop Overview

Ecopsychology explores how nature replenishes a person’s mental health, and ecotherapy is how that replenishment is put into practice. Day one of this workshop will introduce the foundations of ecopsychology and its relevance to the challenges we as humans face in the Anthropocene. Day two the group will get outside and explore ways to use nature’s restorative properties for stress reduction, mental wellness, and more. No mental health training is required to participate in this workshop; this is a skills-based offering for anyone interested in partnering with nature for for its mutual benefits.
