Eco-therapy: The healing power of nature

July 19
10 – 11 am

It might seem intuitive that a walk through a cathedral forest or along a sandy beach is good for mind, body and spirit, but research now reveals that an experience of nature immersion lowers blood pressure, heart rate and cortisol levels as well as boosts immune system function. Through a backdrop of stunning nature images from around the world, this presentation highlights current research in eco-therapy and the need to balance one’s life to avoid nature deficit disorder. During this session, we’ll:

  • Define Nature Deficit Disorder and describe how disassociation from nature harms well-being
  • Examine research that shows why and how time in nature enhances health and well-being
  • Describe workplace impacts and suggest eco-therapy strategies for workplace wellness programs

This webinar is for Trust members only.
