The International Transformational Resilience Coalition and the American Public Health Association will present the “Building Mental Wellness and Psychosocial Resilience for Climate Change” workshop on June 12, 1:30, at Johns Hopkins University [WHERE?]. While public health programs focus on providing short-term assistance during and after major climate events, the public also needs long-term strategies to cope with the strain that rising, ongoing climate change has on mental health and psychosocial well-being.
To meet this need, Bob Doppelt, workshop leader and coordinator of the ITRC, worked with a team of mental health, resilience and trauma treatment specialists to develop the Resilient GrowthTM model. In this workshop --- livecast by APHA on its website --- Doppelt will illustrate how public health professionals can help build widespread resilience for the traumas and toxic stresses of climate change.
