Getting Ahead of Climate Trauma
April 21, 2021 | May 19, 2021 | June 16, 2021
Tribal-serving professionals are doing their best to prepare Tribes for the impacts of climate change ranging from hardening infrastructure to protecting wildlife. But have we forgotten to safeguard our wellbeing? While communities across the US are already suffering climate-related impacts to mental health and wellbeing, there is a lot we can do to better brace ourselves for the future.
Hosted by the Pala Band of Mission Indian’s Tribal Climate Health Project, this interactive three-part Tribal Wellbeing Adaptation Webinar Mini-Series will help arm tribal-serving professionals with knowledge and skills to build psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual resilience in tribal communities before the next wildfire, flood, or other emergency hits. Join peers and expert speakers to discuss emerging research, innovative perspectives, and actionable strategies. Learn more.
