Description

Transformation for Climate Change: How to bring about societal behaviour change


"I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change.

I thought that within 30 years good science we could address those problems.

But I was wrong.

The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy..

and to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation.

And we scientists don't know how to do that"

Gus Speth, US Advisor of Climate Change, Co-Founder National Resource Defence Council


Time to take a deep dive into the challenges of transformation. Joining us with Caroline Hickman, Integrative Psychotherapist and TedX Bath University Speaker, bringing perspectives from psychology and behavioural change science.

Caroline has a background in Social Work and Psychotherapy, currently working as a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Social & Policy Sciences at the University of Bath. She has worked in social work with children & families and mental health since 1983 and in private practice as an Integrative Psychotherapist with children, couples and adults for 25 years.

She is interested in developing innovative therapeutic interventions, eco-psychology, using art and other creative methods in therapy and research and using psychosocial research methods to examine the unconscious process in research.

Caroline is on the Executive Committee of the Climate Psychology Alliance and is leading on establishing a therapeutic support service for people struggling with climate change anxiety. She is currently researching children’s relationships with nature and their feelings about climate change.
