Do you have "eco-anxiety?" - with Dr. Thomas Doherty

Description

Do you ever feel scared about climate change? Anxious about global warming? Are you grieving the world as you know it? You are definitely not the only one feeling that way. Which is why there's now a term for this feeling: eco-anxiety.

In his therapist practice, Dr. Thomas Doherty helps people with exactly that. He is a psychologist who specializes in applying an environmental perspective to mental health and well-being.

And he's not new to this topic - in 2011, he co-wrote a paper with Susan Clayton called The Psychological Impacts of Global Climate Change, and that paper has been cited OVER 700 times.

So I LOVED talking to him about his advice for those of us struggling with eco-anxiety, the mental health benefits of getting outside in nature, and how we can figure out our own environmental identity.
