    As climate change becomes more evident, we, and our clients, face the possibility of an unknown and unstable future. In response to increased awareness and concern, clients may present with a range of existential, climate-specific responses involving anxiety, depression, trauma, guilt, and despair. Mental health professionals are called upon to assist clients in coping with very reasonable fears and fear responses; and to help them find meaning and purpose in the face of a frightening future. In this clinical evening, we will explore research and interventions related to climate psychology; and we will have a dialogue about the challenges clinicians face in working with these themes. 


    Objectives

    1. Identify the ways in which climate change impacts mental health and community health.
    2. Identify the ways in which vulnerable populations are most likely to suffer from climate-related mental health issues.
    3. Identify therapeutic techniques for helping clients deal with climate-induced anxiety, depression and grief.

    The human brain is an amazing and complex organ that allows each of us to think, feel and act. It is increasingly clear, based on the latest research, that the experiences of childhood act as primary architects of the brain’s capabilities throughout the rest of life.  Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, the model developed by Bruce Perry, MD, PhD., connects neurological development and functions in understanding the impact of childhood trauma.  This workshop covers the basic tenants of the model. 


    Objectives  
     
      

    1. The participants will understand the important characteristics of brain   development.

    2. The participants will understand the brain organization and function.

    3.  The participants will understand the the adaptive response to traumatic threat.
