Climate Aware Practitioners

Climate Aware Practitioners

Climate Aware Practitioners (CAPs) are members of PSC who have undertaken professional development with PSC to improve their knowledge and skills to better support people to face the reality of climate change.

PSC’s professional development ensures our members are aware of the impact of climate change on people’s mental health, and skilled in facilitating   the exploration and expression of their emotional response . This work strengthens mental health, wellbeing and resilience. For many people, exploring their emotional connection with the reality of climate change is key to either beginning and maintaining engagement in action for the climate.

CAPs are health, mental health and other professionals who provide one to one and group psychological services, or experiential workshops. Services may be delivered in person or online. CAPS are proactive in advocating and building the emotional awareness, psychosocial support and resilience of individuals, groups and communities.
