Join us on Friday, August 7th at 11am PT for a free webinar event!
On August 7th, the World Business Academy is hosting a webinar alongside Santa Barbara local organizations PsychAlive and The Optimist Daily. The webinar is tilted “From Anxiety to Action: How to Stay Sane while Fighting Climate Change.”
With the latest news around climate change, combined with the effects of the current pandemic, millions of people are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety. With higher and more frequent doses of alarming information coming our way, many of us are at risk of falling into a passive pit of anxiety and despair. However, there are effective and empowering ways to transform our anxiety into action and our despair into inspiration.
Featured in this important conversation is climate psychologist Dr. Renée Lertzman, who has been working in the field of eco-psychology for over 20 years. Dr. Lertzman translates complex psychological and social science research insights into clear, applied, and profound tools for organizations around the world seeking to engage, mobilize, and connect with diverse populations, communities, and individuals. Her unique and integrated approach brings together the best of the behavioral sciences, social sciences, and innovative design sciences to create a powerful approach to engagement and social change.
In this free 60-minute webinar, world-renowned researcher and educator Dr. Lertzman will teach effective tools to balance our mental health with climate action. Her presentation will highlight healthy ways for us to process, address, and communicate about the climate crisis that can forge new pathways for personal and social change.
This webinar will…
- Provide seven key insights that can help us turn climate anxiety, grief, and anger into action
- Explore best practices from clinical psychology that change how we communicate and engage with people, even if they disagree
- Help you connect to an empowering and positive sense of purpose and motivation
- Reveal the surprising truths about the role of our emotions in meeting our climate crisis
- Explain why the psychological concept of attunement is a key ingredient in meeting the climate crisis
By addressing the subject of climate change with a sense of self-compassion and empowerment, we can all take steps to make the change we seek on a personal and global level.
The event will be recorded and posted for free access for anyone who is not able to make the live event.
