Dr Bronwyn Gresham (pictured) was just one of the many impressive speakers at the recent Mindful Futures Network Conference at Melbourne's Brunswick Town Hall.
About 100 people listened as Dr Gresham talked about the psychological impact of the quickly unfolding climate crisis, the need for compassion, mindfulness and self-care.
Dr Gresham has a private practice, "Compassionate Nature" and volunteers with Psychology for a Safe Climate.
The topic for her address to the recent conference was "Compassion and Climate: building future resilience".
Bronwyn used several resources in preparing her address, among them: Self-compassion through supportive touch; the question about What is self-compassion?; a publication from Psychology for a Safe Climate - "Facing the Heat: stories of climate change conversations"; and an article about climate change from the Australian Psychology Society.
And for those who was would rather read than listen, here is the text to Bronwyn's address from the recent mindful conference.
