This episode is hosted by Brian Hutchison, Global Career Guy and Core Faculty at Walden University. It features a conversation about climate change and careers with Trevor Lehmann. Trevor is a career consultant at the University of Manitoba and President of the Climate-Informed Counsellors Chapter of the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association.
Experience with and anticipation of climate change can trigger anxiety, a sense of loss, and fear of the future. It can also aggravate other career development challenges your clients and students may be facing, including mental health conditions and trauma. This episode includes strategies for working with those who have climate-related concerns to cultivate hope, long-term thinking, and new opportunities. Trevor also shares ways to work toward a greener future through a career lens and dispels myths about “green jobs.”
