Aims and Objectives1. To increase awareness and understanding of eco-distress in therapists who are likely to encounter this in their patients. 2. To build awareness and reflection on therapist's own eco-distress and help them to recognise this so that they are able to work with other people's should it arise. 3. To explore how CB theory can offer explanatory power to this understanding 4. To recognise the limitations of CB theory and consider alternative theories that can further support our understanding 5. To consider ways of using CB formulation and techniques in responding to eco-distress.
Learning OutcomesThe attendees will:1. Be able to define eco-distress and understand the multifaceted and variable nature it has. 2. To have reflected upon and developed a better understanding of one's own response to the environmental crises, so that one is better equipped to respond helpfully to other peoples. 3. To consider how eco-distress might arise independent from, and alongside mental health conditions (e.g. General Anxiety, Depression, OCD etc). 4. To see the relevance of EDI and climate justice to eco-distress. 5. To see how CB theory and formulation can support understanding and clinical practice in this area, and to also recognise the limitations. 6. To see the social context within which eco-distress is occurring, and recognise the importance of issues such as moral distress, ecological identity and community responses to the crises as part of this. 7. To learn ways of applying CB and third wave approaches when working with eco-distress.
