Framing the Climate Crisis Psychologically

May 6, 2021 - 7:00 pm

,

Please join Dr. Van Susteren and the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study to address the climate crisis and its cascading impacts, including its emotional and physical toll. RSVP here.

We are profoundly affected in this shared traumatic context, whether consciously or without awareness. Dr. Van Susteren will address the climate crisis and its cascading impacts, including its emotional and physical toll. She will help us look directly at some of the possible catastrophic consequences of doing nothing to change our course. With warmth and compassion, she will help us to engage to find common ground, resilience and the capacity to sustain each other as we work toward a more sustainable world.
