Resiliency In Action
  July 25, 2011  
 
Greetings!

What better time than summer to consider the latest book and research report by Richard Louv, author of The Last Child in the Woods ? Read below about his just-released book, The Nature Principle, and why he believes that for kids AND adults, "the future will belong to the 'nature-smart.'"

His organization's website, The Children and Nature Network, also described below, offers a myriad of excellent resources for parents, educators, community members on restoring our essential contact with nature.

I am ALSO PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE the September 29 - 30, 2011 Resiliency Training of Trainers in L.A. at a 25% REDUCED PRICE.

      Richard Louv describes "The Nature Principle"...a must-read for every teacher, parent, and social service provider...
      sun

      In his latest book, Louv extends the information he provided in the ground-breaking 2005 book, The Last Child in the Woods to people of all ages.

      He notes that a growing body of research documents that even in small doses, exposure to nature can measurably improve psychological and physical health and suggests TIME IN NATURE CAN EVEN INCREASE INTELLIGENCE.


      He documents the reasons that "the future will belong to the 'nature smart.'"

      In a recent article (June, 2011) for Outside Magazine, Louv gives several examples of this point, including:

      "In separate research, the U.S. military has studied how some soldiers seem to be able to use their latent senses to detect roadside bombs and other hazards. The 18-month study of 800 military personnel found that the best bomb spotters were rural people-those who'd grown up in the woods hunting turkey or deer-as well as those from tough urban neighborhoods, where it's equally important to be alert. 'They just seemed to pick up things much better,' reported Army Sergeant Major Todd Burnett, who worked on the study for the Pentagon's Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization. 'They know how to look at the entire environment.' And the other enlistees, the ones who'd spent more time with Game Boys or at the mall? They didn't do so well. As Burnett put it, they were focused on the proverbial 'screen rather than the whole surrounding.'"

      The Children & Nature Network: An excellent source of research, strategies, best practices, and tools!
      ontilesteps

      According to their website (http://www.childrenandnature.org):

      "The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) was created to encourage and support the people and organizations working nationally and internationally to reconnect children with nature. The network provides a critical link between researchers and individuals, educators and organizations dedicated to children's health and well-being."


      CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THIS WEBSITE

      The Network website features clubs all over the country that have organized to get kids and families reconnected to nature. It also includes a toolkit on how to start a club in your area...

      CLICK HERE TO GET THE TOOLKIT

      The website is also rich with research and statistics that document how important it is to reconnect with nature. Consider these points from Richard Louv's blog on the website:

      1. The more high-tech our lives become, the more nature we need
      2. We suffer when we withdraw from nature
      3. Nature brings our senses alive
      4. Individuals and businesses can become nature smart
      5. Nature heals
      6. Nature can reduce depression and improve psychological well-being
      7. Nature builds community bonds
