Promoting Resilience through Connection with Nature

Presenter Name: Jaime M Ascencio, PhD, LP, HTR

Presenter Bio: Dr. Ascencio is a Licensed Psychologist and a Registered Horticultural Therapist and founder of Nurture through Nature. She is passionate about increasing clients' connection to the nature within and around them in order to improve the well-being of all. She has experience facilitating nature-based therapy groups with a variety of ages and presenting concerns, conducting research on horticultural therapy interventions, and educating others on how to increase their own and/or their clients' connection to nature.

Workshop Description: This workshop offers information on the theoretical backing of nature-based interventions, how nature promotes resilience, and how to work with nature to promote healing and well-being. Research-supported healing components of nature are explained and numerous intervention examples are shared at multiple levels of nature exposure (i.e., increasing nature contact in-session, tweaking current interventions to include nature, assigning nature-based homework, and doing nature-specific interventions). Clinicians are left with encouragement and resources to continue incorporating nature into their work.

Workshop Objectives:

*Articulate theoretical underpinnings of how our connection with nature impacts our well-being

*Identify how to incorporate nature into standard "talk therapy" sessions

*Learn specific components of nature and how they interact with our health
