Ecopsychology

Ecopsychology is an emerging discipline that is tricky to define, but for the sake of simplicity I'll say it is concerned with the relationship between the human psyche and the rest of nature: in that broad sense, ecopsychology draws together much of the work I have been involved with for the last 10 years or so.

Mark Scholl describes ecopsychology as "Our ability to apply not only psychology but the entire spectrum of all of our science and the humanities to motivate all of us on this planet to embrace a new vision of what it means to be human". My workshops are applied ecopsychology in Mark's sense and draw on art, philosophy, spirituality and science.

I am part of the UK Ecopsychology network that created and maintain the Ecopsychology UK website. The site provides an ever-expanding range of useful information.

Ecopsychology is a key part of the solution to our current crisis and is developing fast. I'm collecting articles that give you a idea of what the research has revealed so far. If you want to peek at the growing edge, see the Ecopsychology Ning.
