Addressing Climate Anxiety and Ecological Grief


Course description

Human health is threatened by pervasive global challenges: zoonotic viruses, extreme heat and wildfires, flooding, displacement, and substantial loss of biodiversity. Further still, there is growing recognition of environmental impacts on mental health. This course will review evidence-based research about the mental health impacts of climate change and environmental degradation in the context of health care systems, and explore possible community responses to climate anxiety and ecological grief. We will also challenge anthropocentric views of health and reflect on the potential role of increasing distress in relation to pressing environmental challenges.

Please note that portions of the classes will be recorded, and recordings will be available to registrants for 30 days after the class; however, this is an interactive session, and some portions will not be recorded.
