This interdisciplinary course provides an overview of and immersion in the emerging field of nature-based leadership. In a world in which people are increasingly disconnected from the healthy, generative and renewing ways of nature, this course offers a framework and strategies by which to apply nature’s lessons to enhance your life and career. Nature-based leadership is inherently collaborative. It differs significantly from current mechanistic and hierarchical leadership models and is a way forward to restore a healthy and dynamic balance between people and nature. The course recognizes and builds on contributions from ecology, indigenous wisdom, environmental studies, systems theory, complexity, biomimicry, eco-psychology, conservation psychology, and place-based education.

Research indicates that counseling professionals are more prone to increased anxiety and distress, which contributes to vulnerability for professional impairment and burnout (White & Franzoni, 1990; Frame & Stevens-Smith, 1995; Emerson & Markos, 1996; Kottler & Hazler, 1996; Olsheski & Leech, 1996; Sheffield, 1998; Lawson & Venart; ACA Taskforce on Counselor Wellness and Impairment, 2004; Cummins et al., 2007). The purpose of this workshop is to offer practical information regarding wellness based on The Indivisible Self Model of Wellness (Myers & Sweeney, 2005), with the goal of defining personal wellness, exploring barriers to wellness, and developing a personal wellness plan. The workshop will be comprised of both educational and experiential components, utilizing lecture, assessment, demonstration, and question/answer discussions. More information.
