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, 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.
