GREENING YOUR PRACTICE ONLINE COURSE
Global change is on everyone’s mind. The impact is immense. It has created an entirely new suite of symptoms—ecoanxiety, extinction illness, and ecogrief. Mental health professionals are challenged to meet the needs of their 21st century clients.
Conventional training and therapies, however, do not typically accommodate Nature in the therapeutic conversation. This course does.
Greening Your Practice provides you with the necessary resources to integrate Nature into your clinical work. You will learn concepts and methods from neuroscience, ecopsychology, and mindfulness studies that will help to green your practice for the good of your clients and the Earth.
”The course covers important ideas like eco-grief that were not included in my previous training.Lauren B.Counseling student
Greening Your Practice includes four hours of online lectures and activities with scheduled live Q&A with instructors.
The first half of the workshop focuses on foundational concepts from ecopsychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness. The second half applies these approaches so that you can tailor your learning to the needs of your psychotherapy practice.
Upon completion, workshop participants will receive a Greening Your Practice certificate of training from The Kerulos Center for Nonviolence.

Gay holds doctorate degrees in ecology and psychology, and has published, taught, and lectured widely in these fields both in the U.S. and internationally. She is the author of Pulitzer Prize-nominated Elephants on the Edge: What Animals Teach Us about Humanity, and Carnivore Minds: Who These Fearsome Beings Really Are, both published by Yale University Press. Dr. Bradshaw’s work at Kerulos focuses on trans-species psychology, the theory and methods for the study and care of Animal psychological well-being and multi-species cultures. Her research expertise includes the effects of violence on and trauma recovery for Elephants, Grizzly Bears, Chimpanzees, Parrots, and other species both free-living and in captivity.
From an early age, Elizabeth has felt most at home when connecting across species. Her extended family includes Goats, Donkeys, Dogs, and Parrots to name a few. With a dual background in the fields of psychology and environmental studies, Elizabeth’s work strives to expand the frontiers of ecopsychology by illuminating the often-unconscious forces underlying cross-species relationships. Now Director of Education, Elizabeth first joined Kerulos as a Sacred Bones intern in 2012 while volunteering at a Macaw sanctuary in Costa Rica. This formative experience blossomed into a doctoral dissertation in depth psychology at Pacific Graduate Institute which explores the psychological dynamics between poultry, parrots, and people.
