Attachment, Climate Crisis and the Natural WorldBook tickets
The Bowlby Centre
A ground-breaking climate conference that delves into the heart of the climate crisis through the unique perspective of Attachment Theory. Therapeutic practitioners worldwide are witnessing the profound impact of climate change on the mental health of individuals, as anxiety, helplessness, and depression become prevalent concerns. At the same time, the natural world serves as a vital source of comfort and healing for many.
EXPLORING THE HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT BOND: ATTACHMENT’S ROLE IN CLIMATE CRISIS
This conference aims to spotlight the intricate relationship between our environment and our sense of safety and wellbeing. The climate crisis, coupled with relentless consumerist demands, is not only resulting in the loss of habitats and species but is also fostering a profound sense of insecurity that reverberates through individuals, groups, and nations globally.
ATTACHMENT THEORY: ILLUMINATING THE IMPACT OF INSECURITY
Attachment Theory is well-placed to comment on the impact of insecurity. The conference will share insights into the emotional toll of the climate crisis, emphasizing its implications for life and wellbeing. This conference is a unique opportunity to deepen our understanding of the human psyche in the face of environmental challenges.
