Currently enrolled in Prescott College’s Master’s of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, with interests in somatic psychology and ecotherapy. Prescott College states that they have a commitment to social justice and to the environment, which was important to me in applying there. Also currently an assistant manager at a small farm local to my home and occasionally getting paid to coach track and field at my local high school. I am a work-in-progress, and I am always geared toward increasing ecosystem and human system health and balance.
HEALING TRAUMA AND INJUSTICE: A MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP FOR FARMERS AND RANCHERS
THURSDAY OCTOBER 29 | 12 – 2PM MT | $10
This workshop will collaborate with attendees to address the mental health concerns of farmers and ranchers, systemic injustices that exacerbate stress, coping mechanisms, the neurobiology of trauma and social justice, and rituals and self-care for healing. The presenters/facilitators, Ariel Aaronson-Eves and Ailish Kress, are white, middle-class, queer, cisgender women who bring their experiences as farmers and their study of counseling and trauma to their commitment to racial and social justice. The presentation will deal with sensitive subjects; participants are encouraged to prioritize their emotional and psychological safety.
