Nature-Based Training for Psychiatrists
This 2 day course, tailored to Psychiatrists, has been developed in collaboration with the EcoCAMHS group within the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It will provide you with core skills to take your practice into the natural environment. You may be new to the field of nature-based practice, interested in exploring your own nature connection and/or looking to influence psychiatry’s service provision.
Nature connection is a powerful therapeutic tool for treating a wide range of mental health conditions. This experiential training brings together best practice and theory from nature connection, forest skills, eco-psychology, embodiment, resilience, mental health and neuroscience to enable working with individuals and groups of all ages.
You’ll learn through experience, reflexive practice and doing and gain the skills to minimise risks associated with taking groups in your care outdoors.
You will learn a therapeutic nature-based model that meets your clients’ whole health: their mind, body, social and environmental relationships.
