ACS Summer Virtual Workshop Series

Nature Therapy: Tending to Educators’ Well-being

July 1, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm EDT

Facilitated by Ellen Barnett (ebarnet1@trinity.edu), Courtney Crim (courtney.crim@trinity.edu), Laura Allen (lallen@trinity.edu), and Aaron Godlaski (aaron.godlaski@centre.edu)

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.
