Register Now: APA/ecoAmerica Webinar on the Psychological Impacts of Climate Change
The American Psychological Association (APA) and ecoAmerica invite you to join us for a free webinar on the psychological impacts of climate change.
At this point, most leaders and policymakers have a solid understanding of the physical impacts of climate change, like increases in the frequency and severity of floods, storms, and droughts. But how will climate change impact Americans’ mental health and psychological well-being?
Beyond Storms & Droughts: The Psychological Impacts of Climate Change, a new report by APA and ecoAmerica, indicates that climate change will have significant negative impacts on Americans’ mental health, from increases in stress and depression to heightened aggression and violence.
This follow-up webinar, which will be held on Thursday, June 26 from 2 – 3 pm ET, will explain the pathways through which these and other impacts on human well-being will arise, why some communities will be hit harder than others, and how leaders can incorporate psychological impacts into their climate planning, preparation, and communication efforts. Dr. Norman Anderson, CEO of the American Psychological Association, will deliver opening remarks.
This webinar is for community planners, health leaders, policymakers, and other groups working on climate who want to better understand climate change’s psychological impacts and how they can plan and prepare for them.
