This workshop will explore the concept of 'Nature Connection', the importance of it being conceptualised as a relational need, and the theoretical framework that underpins this. The session will explore the surge of evidence on the benefits that an enhanced sense of nature connection can have on nurturing health and well-being as well as pro-environmental behaviours.

The workshop will cover how you can incorporate nature connection into your work, from simple ways of embedding nature-connection in your existing therapeutic practice (e.g., in assessments, formulations and interventions) to drawing upon specific eco-psychological practices aimed at enhancing nature connection. There will also be opportunities to experience the benefits of an enhanced sense of nature connection and to practice skills in embedding nature-based interventions into your practice.

The workshop aims to enhance the effectiveness of your existing CBT practice, improve the well-being of your clients, yourself as a therapist, and the environment and in doing so, hopes to open up a range of possibilities beyond the therapy room.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with a passion for enhancing the wellbeing of their clients, themselves, their organisations and the planet.

Learning outcomes

3.  To learn and practice skills in embedding nature connection through the therapeutic cycle in your CBT practice, from assessment through to intervention and outcomes.

4. To learn some specific eco-psychological practices to further enhance nature-connection for our clients

5. To address therapist burnout and a desire to work positively to address climate change through existing CBT practice and helping clients reflect and consider appropriate actions for emotional regulation and positive action

6. To help participants to be able to raise issues around racial, gender, neurodiversity or social identity that may impact on the ability to develop a sense of nature connection and challenge the accessibility of nature-based practices.
