Taming The Anxious Brain With Nature In Mind

November 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am


About This Presentation

Are you interested in the new frontier of nature-informed therapy?

Nature-Informed (psycho)Therapy explores nature-based methods of psychological healing. It is grounded in the belief that nature has profound mental health effects, specifically for anxiety and stress-related mental health challenges.

This workshop will provide introductory knowledge of neuroscientific concepts of anxiety as well as nature-based strategies and exercises designed to successfully manage emotional de-regulation.

This topic is particularly relevant as many individuals struggle with an uptick in anxiety in the aftermath of the Covid-19 epidemic.
