Discussion group – by Zoom

Ecological Grief

Wednesday 28 February 7-8.30pm

Presenters

Professor Kathryn Williams

Kathryn Williams is professor of environmental psychology at the University of Melbourne.

Her work is concerned with relationships between humans and nature.

Her recent work explores how contemplative nature engagement can support people experiencing ecological distress in the face of environmental change and loss.

She will discuss research undertaken with contemplative practice teachers from diverse traditions to understand potential pathways and activities to support individual, social and ecological well-being.

Abi Catchlove

After working in a range of counselling roles with a relational focus, Abi feels compelled to work in the grief space as she believes grief can act as a medicine; an expansive offering towards healing.

With a personal interest in environmental activism, Abi was drawn to explore the experience of ecological grief and how this intersects with other experiences of loss in acknowledgement of our innate connection and belonging within nature.

Drawing on her background in education, Abi's facilitation of group work and training events is led by curiosity and informed by incorporating engaging content with stimulating discussion to provide meaningful learning and understanding.
