About the Presentation
Do you feel more peaceful and positive when you are in a park, a garden, or with a pet? Do you feel there may be consequences for mainstream culture’s disconnection from nature? Ecotherapy is a growing field that is broadening our concepts of clinical therapy. There are numerous evidence-based studies that demonstrate the efficacy of Ecotherapy with: depression, ADHD, stress reduction, and PTSD. Learn how to incorporate the healing powers of nature into your life and clinical work. Hear case examples from Ecotherapy sessions to illustrate this powerful modality.
At the end of this presentation you will be able to:
- Incorporate ecotherapy techniques into your current practice
- Perform ecotherapy self-care practices
- Discuss evidence-based ecotherapy concepts
