Catching Life as it Flies Is Psychology speaking to Biodiversity Loss? Lecture by Dr Tony Bates
Adjunct Professor of Psychology University College Dublin
As a latecomer to the biodiversity crisis, an innocent Joe suddenly asking very basic questions about why we’ve been so hurtful to nature, and how we can repair our fractured relationship with the environment. Seeing life through the lens of clinical psychology for over 40 years, Tony has learned to appreciate the way psychology invites honest reflection, makes conscious what is often hidden, and empowers people to face painful and overwhelming experiences in their lives. Is it possible for Psychology to speak to a biodiversity crisis, to bring people to a greater awareness of the dynamic web of life in which we are all held, and help us to face the sixth great extinction that we have precipitated without succumbing to fear and despair?
