Conference for Social Service and Climate Leaders on Applying Psychological & Psycho-Social-Spiritual Models to Build Human Resilience for Climate Shocks & Stressors 

From Adverse Childhood Experiences, to job and financial struggles and racial and other forms of inequity and injustice, trauma and toxic stress are epidemic today. Climate change will aggravate all of these adversities, and add many new ones as well. Many programs in the PNW help people with childhood, family, and other traumas. Washington and Oregon are also among the leaders in cutting climate-damaging greenhouse gasses. This conference will show how by breaking down silos and linking these issues, a powerful human resilience building movement can be launched that prevents harmful human reactions to climate change while advancing social equity and reducing emissions.
