Dr Bronwyn Gresham and Dr Susie Burke

As we consider our changing climate and what it means for our future, we can experience a wide variety of emotions, ranging from feeling connected, energised and hopeful to despair, anger and frustration. Climate change can also seem like such an overwhelming issue that it’s much easier to try to avoid thinking about it at all.

So, how can we stay actively engaged on climate change and avoid emotional burnout?

Join us in this event to hear from clinical psychologists, Dr Bronwyn Gresham and Dr Susie Burke, as they discuss techniques and strategies for dealing with these complex emotions.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session led by Dr Rebecca Colvin, with an opportunity for questions from the audience.

This event will be recorded. The recording will be made available after the event through the ANU Climate Change Institute YouTube channel.
