Children’s Emotional Responses to the Climate Crisis, the 6th Mass Extinction and Other Aspects of Our Dysregulating
Part of the Ten-Session Seminar Series for School Psychologists, School Social Workers and School Guidance Counselors
Seminars meet via Zoom on March 11 and March 18 from 4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m.
These workshop sessions will explore the emotional needs of children and adolescents who are learning about the multiple environmental crises currently unfolding. The seminar will include a brief overview of the six intersecting environmental crises, so that we can know enough to understand the concerns of young people. It will explore how easily our own denial, disavowal, or avoidance of this topic can deter children from sharing their fears, confusions, and anger about their deteriorating world. The instructor will share the research about the questions that adolescents most want answered at this time. The instructor will share how this topic has surfaced among the adolescents in her practice and offer a way through these difficult conversations.
By the completion of this two-session workshop, participants will be able to:
- Illustrate the multiple intersecting components of the global climate and environmental emergency.
- Create ways to therapeutically address the emotional reactions that children and adolescents are having to this crisis.
- Recognize the signs of their own avoidance of concerns regarding the impact of the environmental crisis.
