London Climate Action Week – 14 – 20 November 2020

London Climate Action Week – 14 – 20 November 2020

This week is London Climate Action Week. LCAW is an annual event bringing together a world leading array of climate professionals and communities. We are all increasingly aware of the urgency of the need for climate action and therapy spaces are not exempt from this anxiety.

The WPF Therapy workshop Eco Anxiety and Grief in Psychotherapy with Caroline Hickman that will be offered on 24/04/20 will provide a space to consider how eco-anxiety infiltrates the issues that our clients bring. More and more we are seeing increased psychological distress such as eco-anxiety, depression, and grief entering the therapy space as we become more aware of environmental problems.  How do we work with this in the consulting room?  During this workshop participants will explore these emergent problems in their psychotherapy practice. We will look at this both theoretically and practically through a climate crisis lens; and develop practical ideas of how to work imaginally with these concerns through art and stories.

The day will also make space to examine the connection between climate or eco-anxiety and the distress caused by the COVID virus.  This is increasingly important and participants will explore the interrelationship between these and examine how to address both in psychotherapy practice.
