What can help us to face climate reality? How can we work our feelings through about this threat to our survival?

About this Event

The climate bubble of denial is bursting, and people are finding it hard to manage their feelings about the climate emergency. What can help us to face climate reality? How can we recognise what we feel, and work our feelings through about this threat to our survival? What sort of framework do we need to be able to think proportionately about our responsibility for damage already caused to our climate system? This discussion will be opened by Sally Weintrobe, who will introduce her ideas on neoliberal Exceptionalism and the culture of uncare it promotes; a culture that alienates us from the part of us that cares about the effects of our actions and leads to moral injury. Sally is a psychoanalyst with the British Psychoanalytical Society, a founder member of the Climate Psychology Alliance, and chairs the International Psychoanalytic Association's Climate Committee. She has written and lectured widely on climate change. Her new book, Psychological Roots of the Climate Crisis: Neoliberal Exceptionalism and the Culture of Uncare, is out in April.
