PD1: Engaging with climate change and eco-distress


Date(s) - 25/05/2022
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Via Zoom


In the first webinar in the Climate Aware Practitioners PD series, participants will be introduced to PSC’s Support Model, an evidence-informed approach to supporting people who are distressed by the reality of climate change. PSC encourages expression of emotions about climate change without pathologising people’s responses. Eco-anxiety and climate distress are seen as rational responses to the growing climate crisis. Participants will engage with their own response to climate change in order to develop capacity to provide professional support around this challenging issue.

Participants may wish to take their learning further by participating in the whole series of the Climate Aware Practitioner Professional Development.

All events are via Zoom (AEDT – Melbourne time).

Event Facilitators:

Dr Beth Hill is a facilitator and anthropologist. Her research looks at the emotional and psychological dimensions of climate change, and her training as a facilitator is focused on supporting people to connect with their love of nature, rediscovering a sense of agency through the expression of their feelings about what is happening to our world.

Carol Ride – 10 years ago Carol shifted from working as a psychologist in the field of couple therapy, to working with colleagues to develop Psychology for a Safe Climate.  My focus now is in offering emotional support to those engaged as activists, researchers, policy makers and scientists.
