for counsellors and psychotherapists seeking to address climate change through their practice, and build resiliency.
A quick summary
Leslie Davenport makes the case for counsellors and psychotherapists to engage actively with climate change – addressing both the impacts on mental health, and also the underlying psychological states that fuel destructive behaviours. This book sets out a range of considerations, including the psychology of climate denial, grief, and the place of ‘politics’ in therapeutic practices. Davenport offers reflective exercises for practitioners and clients, and sets out the vision for increased resiliency and an ecoharmonious society, which mental health professionals can help bring to reality.
