Existential-Humanistic approaches to Ecopsychology and addressing environmental issues or concerns in Psychotherapy settings.
Presented by Thomas Doherty, Psy D
Ecopsychology is a natural fit for the existential-humanistic practitioner. This presentation will differentiate between some of the existential/humanistic approaches to dealing with environmental issues (e.g., working on emotional acceptance and being) versus more common behavioral approaches (e.g., strategies to encourage sustainable behaviors). A take away will be that this is not an either/or proposition. Counselors or other environmental change agents need to be able to balance both of these approaches. Humanistic approaches will be helpful in the short term while helping someone to cope with the situation and formulate a response, and in the long-term by helping someone to cope with situations that are out of their control and potentially unchangeable.
