Healing With Ecotherapy: Ethical Considerations in Helping Clients
Reconnect to the Body and Nature to Resolve Trauma
Psychologist and mindfulness teacher, Rochelle Calvert, PhD, will explore teachings from her recent book Healing with Nature: Mindfulness and Somatic Practices to Heal from Trauma, which reminds us that one of the greatest sources of healing from trauma can be found all around us in nature. Dr. Calvert will discuss ethical considerations in helping clients relate to and connect with nature through the practice of mindfulness to calm and relax the nervous system, tune in to the somatic wisdom of the body, face lingering trauma and rewire it, and work with painful experiences to transform them in ways that heal the individual and contribute to healing the wider world. In this way, Dr. Calvert reveals the importance of ethical Ecotherapy practice as a path not just to recovery, but to lifelong healing and resilience.
