Latest Issue of Explorations Journal

We invite you to delve into our fifth issue of Explorations in Climate Psychology which is now available!

Explorations is an online publication that aims to be inclusive of the different ways people are experiencing and engaging with one another on the climate and ecological crisis. It welcomes various forms of expression from analytical articles, reviews and features that promote peer-reviewed research to interviews, reflections, testimonies, poetry, art and lightly edited conversations. 

This latest edition asks authors to clarify the position of climate psychology on the edges of chaos and reveal the dimensions of these edges – the chaos on the edges of nature, within our mind, and in our political life and culture.

Holding the Hope – Reviving Psychological And Spiritual Agency In The Face Of Climate Change

Catastrophic climate change and the growing reality of the destruction of Earth’s ecosystem and species extinction hang over us all. These topics are increasingly coming up in the work of all talking therapy professionals – counsellors, psychotherapists, coaches and psychologists. They must be able to hold their clients’ and communities’ emotions and responses – fear, anger, denial, grief, helplessness and hopelessness – and manage their own.

About Us

We are a diverse community of therapeutic practitioners, thinkers, researchers, artists and others. We believe that attending to the psychology and emotions of the climate and ecological crisis is at the heart of our work.
