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.
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.
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.
What makes eco-therapy ‘eco-therapy’?
We will outline some core theoretical beliefs and consider the evidence.
There will be an opportunity for discussing ‘next steps’ and you will be signposted toward further training, resources and eco-therapeutic supervisors.
Fees for this workshop are:
£30 per person payable in advance.
Fees include tea/coffee/squash and a CPD certificate.
Note: we supply plant-based milks, however, you are welcome to bring dairy milk along if you prefer.
