ACS Summer Virtual Workshop Series
Nature Therapy: Tending to Educators’ Well-being
July 1, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm EDT
The COVID-19 pandemic and abrupt transition to online teaching and learning exacerbated existing stressors in the professoriate. This interactive workshop explored the benefits of time in nature and evidenced-based practices that support mental health and well-being that educators can incorporate in their professional and personal practice. Participants were invited to experience recovery potential for themselves through engagement in practices, e.g., breathing exercises and a brief virtually guided outdoor experience, a process which can also be accomplished indoors. Participants were also encouraged to share their own practices.
