CLIMA Panel: (Un)Healthy World
December 2, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Wednesday, December 2
What are the implications of global climate change on human health? The panel will discuss how environmental changes can lead to the rise of infectious diseases and alterations in the microbiome that directly affect the health of humans, animals, crops and other plants. The panel will also discuss the positive effects of nature on the human psyche and the mental health challenges brought about by environmental degradation and loss.
PsychoAnalysis of Climate Change (an “imagined performance” by Xavier Cortada): A psychoanalyst will put the patient on the couch and explore early childhood experiences that may have led to present-day dysfunction.
EnvironMental Therapy Session: Participants will engage in a group therapy session to address grief due to their (environmental) loss and focus on cognitive behavior responses to confront their daily challenges.
Eco-Medication: Participants will take a pill to make them immune from all the dangers of global climate change.
