Introduction to Ecopsychology

Humans everywhere are dangerously unaware of themselves. We really know nothing about the nature of humankind, and unless we hurry to get to know ourselves we are in dangerous trouble. - Sir Laurens van der Post

 

Introduction to Ecopsychology is a 5-week online interactive course that introduces the basic processes and principles of ecological psychology (ecopsychology).

Participants will learn how to work with and apply five ecological and psychological processes of energy, diversity, intra-actions and waste, change, and relationality in their personal lives, communities, and workplaces to explore narratives and detrimental practices.

Ideas and narratives have an efficacy of their own: to poison or to activate and inspire, to close down or to open up new possibilities.

It matters what ideas and narratives we imagine other ideas and narratives with; it matters what narratives we story the world with.

Participants will more deeply recognize how ecological, economic, and social issues are inextricably connected and experience first-hand how human narratives drive behaviors and practices.

The June Introduction Course we will pay special attention at this time to zoonotic disease that has transferred from non-human animals to humans and how the narratives we choose to engage through this crisis will shape our relationships with ourselves, each other, our communities and the ecological world for decades to come.

Challenge and educate yourself to take ideas and their adventure seriously. There has never been a more precarious time to engage in ecological psychology than now!
