Confronting our Climate Grief

Natalie Sampson, PhD, MPH

The workshop is from 2-3:30, followed by a networking reception until 4:00.

In 2017, the American Psychological Association, Climate for Health, and ecoAmerica published, “Mental Health and our Changing Climate: Impacts, Implications, and Guidance.” In October 2018, the U.N. released a report warning that without “unprecedented” political actions, we will likely see catastrophic conditions by 2040. Globally, most communities are already experiencing effects of climate change, and the poorest members of society remain most vulnerable. In this uncertain context, climate grief is real, particularly as the crisis is largely beyond any individual’s ability to control. As a scholar studying climate change, Sampson has sought emerging evidence-based strategies in hopes of coping and building resiliency. In this workshop, together we will: 1) confront our sometimes silent, biggest fears related to climate change, 2) identify ways our community or current professional work may be climate-affected, and 3) create a personal climate resiliency plan that may include household or community action or policy advocacy strategies.
