I wanted to share news about this second annual event happening in June. This is an incredible group of local speakers, with more being added daily, and the value is outstanding. We had a very powerful experience last year and many new connections were made. The Lewis & Clark campus is beautiful in June. Come for one or two days. — Thomas Doherty 

Event Description

Our intuition and science tell us that humans are an integral part of nature. What are the psychological ramifications of our interdependence and interbeing with the rest of the natural world? How should this inform our identities, ethics and mental health, as well as our actions toward one another, and our actions toward the earth and other species?

This two-day symposium will bring together a number of  Oregon scholars and practitioners to explore ecopsychology and kindred endeavors from the perspectives of creativity and self-expression, teaching and research, and socially engaged therapeutic practices.

The event will feature expert speakers, networking, and large group dialogue. Attendees will have an unprecedented opportunity to see and hear a number of local experts speak to the “ecopsychological” in their work.

Who should attend?

Educators, sustainability professionals, healthcare professionals, environmental advocates, artists and creative professionals, and others interested in integrative perspectives on the psychology of human-nature relationships.
