A book launch and social evening to mark the publication of Caroline's new book, Ecotherapy in Practice. Come and join us for a pleasant evening, hopefully in the garden of The Buddhist House (but if not in our indoor space). A change to hear a bit about ecotherapy and its application in many fields, to chat informally, and to spend social time together. All welcome. Please let us know if you are coming. Bring veggie food to share. Books will be on sale at a subsidised rate of £20 on the day.
This day is part of a weekend of outdoor therapy activity. The forum on September 16th will be led by Kate Macairt, a play therapist and trainer with an interest in working with nature. We will also be holding an ecotherapy retreat day on Sunday 17th.
Ecotherapy in Practice reflects the growing interest and research in this field. Drawing on a diversity of experience from the counselling and psychotherapy professions, but also from practitioners in community work, mental health and education, this book explores the exciting and innovative possibilities involved in practising outdoors.
Caroline Brazier brings to bear her experience and knowledge as a psychotherapist, group worker and trainer over several decades to think about therapeutic work outdoors in all its forms. The book presents a model of ecotherapy based on principles drawn from Buddhist psychology and Western psychotherapy which focuses particularly on the relationship between person and environment at three levels, moving from the personal level of individual history to cultural influences, then finally to global circumstances, all of which condition mind-states and psychological wellbeing.
Ecotherapy in Practice will provide refreshing and valuable reading for psychotherapists and counsellors in the field, those interested in Buddhism, and other mental health and health professionals working outdoors
