For counsellors who want to integrate nature and mental health, this webinar provides an overview of the benefits of exposure to the natural world as a healing method for various psychological issues and how to implement nature-informed therapy (NIT) into one’s practice.
Many mental health professionals are seeing the benefits of incorporating nature into their practices. Yet, many therapists feel unsure of the logistics around taking clients outside, limiting opportunities for the client. Using proven methods that Nature-Informed Therapy is clinically shown to benefit human physical and emotional well-being, these emerging methods are now being used for treatment of burnout, depression, anxiety, grief and ADHD. NIT is a form of transpersonal psychology that offers creative resources to a wide range of clients including adults and children.This 1-hour workshop will provide an overview of significant research findings and how to assess a client for NIT as an appropriate approach.


Feel restored by the benefits that this practice provides you, the clinician, as well as your clients!
