LANDSCAPES OF THE MIND CONFERENCE
Does our mental health depend on our relationship with the natural world?
FRIDAY 25 - SUNDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2009
ABOUT THIS EVENT

Chaired by Professor David Peters and Nick Totton

As the planet is poised at the tipping point of irreversible climate change, we struggle to conceptualise this potential catastrophe and its consequences. Too awful, perhaps, to deeply contemplate the consequences of inaction, we bury this awareness in order to re-establish the emotional comfort zone of denial. Believing, perhaps, that we are individually helpless to impact on this terrifying escalation, this helplessness is often felt as despair and moral confusion.

How profoundly does this drama play out in the psyche and in our emotional health? Do psychotherapists have the listening and vocabulary in place yet to relate to fears about environmental degradation at a sufficiently deep level? How can we develop this skill? Could an enriched sensibility to our place in nature enable us to shift from passive anguish to psychologically-healthy problem solving and greater emotional health? What is the relationship between therapy and nature? Between deep ecology and well-being?

This conference will examine how we can creatively harness our awareness of our relationship with nature - rather than suppress it - and will question whether we develop our mental health and cultural depth by relating to nature as a subject to be nurtured rather than an object to be exploited.
