Event description

Description

Climate, Psychology, Conversation: the unconscious dynamics of how we talk about climate change.

How can we deal with the strong feelings climate change evokes in
ourselves and in others? The experience of speaking out about this most urgent of issues, whether face to face or on social media, is fraught with conflict. How can we cope with the anger, avoidance or disbelief that erupts into relationships when the subject is introduced? Join us in a talk that will offer some insights from psychotherapy which may help.

Ro Randall is a psychoanalytically trained psychotherapist that is researching, writing and blogging about Climate Change. Since her 20s she was involved in the environmental movement as part of the editorial collective "Undercurrents" and the development of the award-winning Carbon Conversations. She wrote several books including " In Time for Tomorrow? The Carbon Conversation Handbook " and " A New Climate for Psychotherapy?".

Free wine, soft drinks and vegan food will be provided - with a great opportunity for networking after the talk.
