Do we face an environmental crisis, or a crisis of humanity’s relationship with the natural environment? Eco-psychology seeks to explore how modern psychological and capitalistic discourses have fragmented individual and social connections from the natural environment. This course will introduce you to the main theories and applications of eco-psychology. We will use experiential and multidisciplinary academic approaches to understand how human beings (dis)connect from our natural environments and identify opportunities for individual and community change.
