What it is: ecopsychology?

Ecopsychology

Ecopsychology is a very new social and intellectual movement that aims to understand and harmonize people's relationship with the planet. Ecopsychologists examine the psychological processes that connect us with nature and distance us from nature.

Although this is a relatively new field, it has grown rapidly in recent years due to the growing awareness of the importance of protecting the environment and the need for a more sustainable lifestyle.

Ecopsychologists believe that humans are deeply connected to the natural world, and that this connection is essential for our mental and physical health. They argue that when we are disconnected from nature, we experience a number of negative consequences, such as stress, anxiety and depression. On the other hand, when we spend time in nature, we experience a number of positive benefits, such as reducing stress, improving mood and increasing feelings of well-being.

Ecopsychologists also believe that humans have a responsibility to protect the natural world. They claim that we are part of the "web of life" and that we have a moral obligation to take care of the planet and all its inhabitants. Ecopsychologists work to promote environmental awareness and educate people about the importance of sustainable lifestyle.
