An in-person workshop for Qualified Counsellors & Therapists

Exploring the ideas and theories of eco-therapy

This workshop provides you with a baseline understanding of the theory behind eco-therapy. It makes a clear distinction between eco-therapy and ‘therapy outdoors’, examining the attitudes and philosophical foundations of this increasingly popular way of working.

Workshop Content

This introductory workshop provides you with a broad tour of eco-therapeutic theory using the lens of counselling practice to provide context. It has been designed to create a bassline understanding and acts as an excellent launching point into further training for those interested in specialising.

Defining eco-therapy

What is eco-therapy? How broad an approach is it and what are some of the ways that eco-therapy can manifest?

Exploring the centrisms

Eco-therapy differs in its philosophical stance compared to other therapies. We will explore what these differences are and why they are significant.

Theoretical foundations

What makes eco-therapy ‘eco-therapy’?

We will outline some core theoretical beliefs and consider the evidence.

signposting

There will be an opportunity for discussing ‘next steps’ and you will be signposted toward further training, resources and eco-therapeutic supervisors.
