Psychology and Trauma Therapy for Climate Resilience

Our guest in this episode is Graeme Beamiss, a psychology student at the University of the Fraser Valley, who shares his thoughts on the connections between psychology, trauma therapy, and the ecological crisis. He describes the epistemic crisis humanity is in the midst of related to sustainability. Graeme also points out how our health and wellness as individuals are intrinsically linked to the health of the world. He offers some fantastic thoughts and solutions for how to re-frame ideas of “eco-anxiety” in healthier ways that build resiliency and innovation. Thinkers and ideas Graeme mentions: Naval Ravikant and Boyen Slat’s Ocean Clean Up. Kyla also references UFV professor Sven Van de Wetering.
