Selected writing and speaking on climate, nature, and parent / child emotional wellbeing

I share this glimpse into my personal and professional journey, “Raising Children During the Climate Crisis”, thanks to The Climate Reality Project’s Bay Area chapter.

I appeared on NPR’s Anti-Dread Climate Podcast, with support for parents in how to communicate with our children about climate change.

I was interviewed about providing climate education that strengthens resilience and promotes positive action in this story on NPR: “Kids in Los Angeles fight climate change by tackling food waste at school.”

I am proud to have supported my colleague Elizabeth Bechard as co-author on this extensive lit review: What are the Impacts of Concern about Climate Change on the Emotional Dimensions of Parents’ Mental Health? A Literature Review
