10 September, 2022 – Eco-anxiety in the Consulting Room with Anouchka Grose (Lecture)

CPD Event title: Eco-anxiety in the Consulting Room with Anouchka Grose (Lecture)

Brief Description Of Event: This lecture will be delivered via Zoom.
How can we take the climate crisis seriously without succumbing to depression, anxiety and pre-emptive grief?   How can we best respond to our analysands’ climate-related suffering?
Treatments for ‘eco-anxiety’ tend to follow a loose pattern that goes something like, ‘meditate, talk to your friends and get involved in activism’. While these are all perfectly good ideas they can sometimes seem merely to skim the surface of the psychic pain caused by species loss, global heating, and the threat of societal breakdown — not to mention the idea that our planet is no longer a viable habitat for new life.

Learning Objectives: This talk will discuss the ways in which the climate crisis may affect our mental health, as well as offering some alternative thinking around how we might be able work with and respond to ‘eco-anxiety’ in our practice, taking ideas from eco-psychoanalysis in order to propose a kind of ‘psychoactivism’.
