Psychology Tools for Conservation Professionals

Date: Friday, 12/3/10
Time: 11:30-12:45
Place: Dance Studio

Clinical psychologist and Antioch alumni Thomas Doherty will introduce the model of personal sustainability he uses with his clients and describe research and practices for promoting diverse environmental identities, personally meaningful conservation behaviors, and resilience in the face of environmental catastrophe. He will describe the complex pathways to environmentally significant behavior and ways to work with positive and negative emotions to foster motivation, creativity, and equanimity, and to avoid push back.

The Master of Two Worlds metaphor, drawn from the archetypal Hero’s Journey, provides a useful model for agents of change who carry a vision of sustainability and labor to foster their vision in their families, organizations, and communities.
