Facing Difficult Truths
Exploring psychological responses to the climate crisis to strengthen relationships and resilience for a just future
Climate psychology is concerned with the emotions, and the social and mental processes that have contributed to the ecological and climate crisis, and our responses and processes of adaptation to it. In the Climate Psychology Alliance we draw on psychotherapeutic approaches, psychosocial studies, the arts, spiritual and philosophical thought, literature, systems thinking and ecopsychology, all in the service of unpicking our collective and individual responses to the crisis, much of which is unacknowledged and unconscious. Climate psychology aims to contribute by:
• building understanding and support for individuals and groups
• enabling transformation and adaptation
• helping us to cope with the consequences of the climate and ecological crisis.
