South Chapel, Graduate Campus

This interdisciplinary talk, suitable for counselors and educators, looks at some classic theories of human development in the modern context of people’s relationship to nature and other species.

For example, we will integrate Piaget’s theory of cognitive development with educator David Sobels’ principles of developmentally-appropriate environmental education. We will discuss the implications for education and counseling, particularly in terms of equity and social justice issues related to access to safe and healthy green spaces.
