How can we help and support people to face climate change? Engaging with Climate Changeis the first book of its kind to explore in depth what climate change actually means to people. It is the first to bring members of a wide range of different disciplines in the social sciences together in discussion and to introduce a psychoanalytic perspective. The important insights that result have real implications for policy, particularly with regard to how to relate to people when discussing the issue. Topics covered include: · what lies beneath the current widespread denial of climate change · how do we manage our feelings about climate change · our great difficulty in acknowledging our true dependence on nature · conflicts in our sense of identity · the effects of living within cultures that have perverse aspects · the need to mourn before we can engage in a positive way with the new conditions we find ourselves in Through understanding these issues and adopting policies that recognize their implications humanity can hope to develop a response to climate change of the nature and scale necessary. Aimed at the general reader as well as psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and climate scientists, this book will deepen our understanding of the human response to climate change.
Sally Weintrobe, a practising psychoanalyst, is a Fellow of the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London. She sees a psychoanalytic perspective as a vital part of understanding how to engage people about the seriousness of climate change and how to understand current levels of denial. She has written and lectured widely on these subjects and on our relationship with nature. Her commitment to fostering interdisciplinary exchange with other human scientists about engaging with climate change has led to this remarkable book.
