New ecopsychology journal will premiere in spring 2009
Date:3/20/2009

New Rochelle, NY, March 20, 2009 Ecopsychologyan emerging field that explores the psychological origins of environmental issues and ways in which ecology and psychology interact on individual, societal, and global levelsis the focus of a new online peer-reviewed journal, Ecopsychology to be launched by publisher Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. this spring (www.liebertpub.com/eco).

Ecopsychology will explore the relationship between environmental issues and mental health and well-being. The Journal will examine the psychological, spiritual, and therapeutic aspects of human-nature relationships; concern about environmental issues; and responsibility for protecting natural places and other species. The premier issue will include provocative articles such as "Mindfulness and Sustainable Behavior: It Isn't Effortless Being Green," "Nature and Self: An Ambivalent Attachment," "Too Many People: Psychology, Population, and the Environment," and "Cohabitating with the Wild."

Editor-in-Chief Thomas Joseph Doherty, Psy.D., Graduate School of Education and Counseling, Lewis & Clark College (Portland, OR), believes ecopsychology places psychology and mental health disciplines in their true ecological context and recognizes crucial links between human health, culture, and the health of the planet. Ecopsychology encompasses people's perspectives and reactions to environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, extinction, recycling, and the impact of their ecological footprint. With its groundbreaking and diverse collaboration of psychotherapists, social science researchers, and contributors from other environmental related fields, Ecopsychology is the only peer-reviewed journal of its kind.

Future issues will encompass how to balance environmental and sustainability concerns with lifestyle choices and religious, societal, and cultural practices; the role of connection to nature in healthy development and identity; emotional and psychological factors that drive environmental issues; ecotherapy and the use of wilderness for health and healing; effective ways to motivate sustainable behaviors; coping with anxiety or grief about environmental destruction; and spiritual and cultural practices that support a healthy environment.
