Understanding Embodiment: A Critical Connection to Improving Human and Environmental Health Under Laudato Si' in the Anthropocene

When: May 8, 12:30 p.m.
Boeing Room, Lemieux Library (122)
In today’s Anthropocene, the context of increasing environmental degradation accompanies ongoing ill and worsening human health, both disproportionately affecting the most marginalized humans and environmental spaces among us. Embodiment is a complex concept with the potential to help health professionals understand integral ecology, and the importance of the Laudato Si’ platform, to which Seattle University is committed. Embodiment is also a potential pathway for enacting a truly holistic view of health as framed by Indigenous knowledges and Catholic Intellectual Tradition principles, which both honor “the accumulated wisdom of the past.”

In this presentation, Dr. Fricas will share findings from an initial literature review of the concept of embodiment, contextualize these with data from research into well-being in Ecuador, and discuss implications for the education of health professionals.
