Facts about floods, fires, and famine come at us every day. Over 200 national and international scientific bodies: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), among them, post regularly on the impact of human activity to the environment. Conflict, denial, debate, and other emotional reactions spread like wildfire throughout families and society.
Bowen theory offers unique ways to thoughtfully engage the challenges of climate and deal with reactions stirred:
- What does it take to see one’s family as part of the natural world?
- What are examples of adaptation to climate changes from nature and from the history one’s family?
- Who is responsible for change?
- How does one think for oneself in an anxious family or group?
Creating a Climate for Change will use Bowen theory to focus on understanding the impact of climate and humans as part of evolution and the natural world. The goals for this conference include thinking that can: 1) increase knowledge about human reactivity and 2) illustrate ways to understand and manage anxious reactions stirred by facts and by changes that are required for individuals and institutions.
