Climate change is having an increasing impact on well-being and mental health, including the impact on health professionals. In this interactive workshop we will explore the emotional, cognitive and behavioural impact of climate change upon ourselves, our communities and our clients, and how to facilitate discussions about this.

The workshop will describe a group intervention, as well as applications to individual work, that draws upon CBT models such as ACT, Motivational Interviewing and Positive Psychology. Stories and narratives are also used to build a safe context to explore strong and conflicting feelings and coping and behavioural strategies such as self-care, acceptance, distancing and positive action. The model can be used in organisational and community settings and does not need expert knowledge about climate change, but requires good interpersonal skills for reflecting on thoughts, feelings and actions. 

Aims and objectives

1.To increase confidence and knowledge about discussing climate change and emotional responses in both organisational and clinical settings

2.To give skills in raising the subject and helping clients reflect and consider appropriate actions for emotional regulation and positive action

3.To help participants to be able to raise issues around racial, gender, neurodiversity or social identity that may impact on the reaction to climate change
