In a joint venture between The Psychotherapy Institute and The Sanville Institute, "The Ecological Crisis: Taking Responsibility and Cultivating Hope" is a multi-disciplinary conversation about the psychological causes and effects of the ecological crisis. This event includes a dramatic reading of a screenplay written and performed by Naomi Newman, a paper presented by psychotherapist Terri Rubinstein on understanding and healing alienation from oneself, from others and from the natural world, and a talk and Q&A discussion with nationally recognized eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. CE Units available. Joanna Macy, PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, systems thinking and deep ecology. A respected voice in movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with learning from decades of activism.
