Psychology, Ecopsychology, & Our Future

Ecopsychology is both the skillful application of ecological insight to the practice of psychotherapy and the skillful application of psychological insight to the development of ecological sustainability. It is based on the understanding that a person or society cannot be sane or whole without a respectful, reciprocal relationship with the Earth and all its beings.

Our Future depends on making choices so that all beings can flourish within the carrying capacity of the earth, now and forever.  
Key choices:

The research that led to this definition of regenerative sustainability comes from my white paper originally published in 2012: Three Behaviors That Can Save Us: The Social Psychology of Planetary Survival.  (I have since split one of the three behaviors into its two parts, to yield the current four key behaviors.  The basic analysis still holds. The white paper has a lot of graphics, so it may take a minute to load.)
