We’ll explore the deluge tidal of information, including a great deal of traumatic information about the fate of Mother Earth, that all of us are confronted with daily. I’ll share the steps of a trauma-to-transcendence cycle that begins with awareness, leads to resilient coping, and then continues to a transcendent response. This cycle always involves action and creates hope.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Help their own clients effectively identify and cope with the many global threats that are part of the landscape of our lives.
  2. Describe the process of denial that keeps us from dealing with global climate change, and also the trauma-to-transcendence cycle that has the potential to save us.
  3. Teach clients many antidotes to despair, including action, a growth in moral imagination and bliss.
