Premier issue of Ecopsychology launched by Mary Ann Liebert Inc. publishers
Date:4/21/2009

The goal of this new journal is to "chronicle ecopsychology as a transdisciplinary endeavor and social movement, advance the knowledge and practice of psychology and psychotherapy in an ecological context, and offer psychological solutions to environmental problems," writes Editor-in-Chief Thomas Joseph Doherty, PsyD, Graduate School of Education and Counseling, Lewis & Clark College (Portland, OR), in an editorial introducing the first issue. In so doing, Ecopsychology will "raise provocative questions about consciousness, identity, health, and ethical living.

Doherty believes that 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. The field encompasses perspectives and reactions to environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, extinction, recycling, and the impact of one's ecological footprint.

"Ecopsychology will play an important role in the field of mental health and well being for children and adults of all ages," says Mary Ann Liebert, the publisher of this innovative new Journal.

Included in the inaugural issue is an interview with Robert Greenway, Professor Emeritus in Psychology at Sonoma State University (Rohnert Park, CA), who discusses the develop
