A thought-provoking piece about how therapists are handling the climate crisis. “Human well-being has historically been linked to participation in a healthy ecocultural context. Living within a context that is obviously unhealthful is painful.”

Around the time of the bushfires in Australia, just before the world shut down for COVID, I felt overwhelmed by the sheer number of layering societal challenges intruding on the clinical frame. I remember having a frustrated thought that I was trained to navigate human relationships and all this climate chaos and grief was outside my wheelhouse; I imagined a priest, rabbi, or imam better prepared. Iโ€™ve since landed in recognition that the problems we face societally, in the collective, are inherently ones of relationship. In order to face the otherness in the unknown future, in our neighbors next door and across seas, we could all use a better understanding of how we relate to ourselves and those closest to us.
