Because of increased interest in training programs and recent COVID precautions, several events have been created as online or hybrid options, so that participation is available at the national and international level. Leslie is doing fewer public programs so that she can turn her attention to working with non-profits and agencies that recognize the important of building an emotional resilient work culture as they address environmental and social crises. Recent in-house and public programs include 350.org, NOAA, Omydiar, Post Carbon Institute, CivicSpark, 3Degrees, Woman, Food and Agriculture, Rad Power Bikes, ReScape California, HopeLab, EKR Foundation, Partners in Emergency Preparedness, American Psychological Association, Earthjustice.

Utilizing an integrative and robust framework that includes multiple behavioral science approaches and philosophies, as well as a view into the broken systemic legacies from which painful eco-emotional conditions arise, climate psychology is adaptable to various therapeutic orientations.
