Facing Difficult Truths
Exploring psychological responses to the climate crisis to strengthen relationships and resilience for a just future
We provide support to individuals and groups struggling with eco-distress and offer safe spaces to share emotions surrounding the climate crisis.
Research & Reflection
We research climate denial, disavowal, eco-distress, the psychological impact of climate change related disasters, and climate injustice.
We are especially concerned with the impact of climate change on young people. We do extensive research and provide support to teachers, parents and young people.
Training & Events
We are engaged in a wide range of outreach, continuing professional development, and educational and community activities.
Talks & Consultancy
For organisations and businesses we offer a range of talks, consultancy, workshops and conference presentations in the theory and practice of climate psychology.
Climate psychology is concerned with the emotions, and the social and mental processes that have contributed to the ecological and climate crisis, and our responses and processes of adaptation to it. In the Climate Psychology Alliance we draw on psychotherapeutic approaches, psychosocial studies, the arts, spiritual and philosophical thought, literature, systems thinking and ecopsychology, all in the service of unpicking our collective and individual responses to the crisis, much of which is unacknowledged and unconscious. Climate psychology aims to contribute by:
• building understanding and support for individuals and groups
• enabling transformation and adaptation
• helping us to cope with the consequences of the climate and ecological crisis.
