• how climate change creates personal, family, and community traumas and toxic stresses; • how those traumatic stressors trigger feedbacks that expand and aggravate ACEs and many other person, social, community, and societal maladies; • why current approaches are woefully inadequate to address what is already occurring and rapidly steaming toward us and why prevention is the only realistic solution; • the framework for prevention we call Transformational Resilience that includes resilience education and skills-development focused on both Presencing and Purposing skills.
Speakers: Bob Doppelt, Executive Director, The Resource Innovation Group, and Founder and Coordinator of the International Transformational Resilience Coalition (ITRC).
The International Transformational Resilience Coalition (ITRC) is a network of over 400 mental health, social service, social justice, climate, emergency response, faith, and other professionals working to prevent harmful personal, family, community, and societal maladies resulting from climate change generated traumas and toxic stresses by ensuring that every adult and child in the U.S. and worldwide learns preventative Presencing (self-regulation) and Purposing (adversity-based growth) information and skills.
Hope in a Changing Climate optimistically reframes the debate on global warming. Illustrating that large, decimated eco-systems can be restored, the BBC World documentary reveals success stories from Ethiopia, Rwanda and China which prove that bringing large areas back from environmental ruin is possible, and key to stabilising the earth’s climate, eradicating poverty and making sustainable agriculture a reality.
is a grassroots, volunteer, non-profit organization of area residents who care about climate change and have joined forces to take bold action against it. Through volunteer projects, we focus on reducing the impacts of Global Warming across Southern Oregon.
Recognizing the urgent need for bold action, SOCAN’s mission is to promote awareness and understanding about the causes and consequences of climate change, to develop solutions, and to motivate concerned citizens to take individual and collective action.
We seek a reduction in the global atmospheric greenhouse gas concentration to 350 parts per million (Carbon dioxide equivalent: CO2e). To achieve this, we collaborate with individuals and organizations throughout the world and encourage both personal and governmental actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
