Caroline teaches at the University of Bath & is a member of the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) Executive Committee; academic & psychotherapist. She is researching children & young people’s feelings about the climate and biodiversity crisis in the UK, Maldives & Bangladesh to explore different narratives, images and defences against the 'difficult truth' of the climate and bio-diversity crisis and climate anxiety. She is passionate about getting ‘under the surface’ metaphorically and literally.

Caroline has been recording a podcast series with CPA ‘Climate Crisis Conversations – Catastrophe or Transformation’ and working with other members of CPA to develop their therapeutic outreach including work with schools, setting up climate café’s, supporting youth school strikers, parent support groups & working with Greenpeace to develop alternative education for young people in response to the climate emergency

    • This question was answered below (see at the bottom of this page).

  • I"m very glad to know this will be recorded since I'll need to step away before the full hour.

    I am most interested in how to prepare younger children for the future, with both soft and hard skills.  I teach K-6 in a school in New Mexico, US, which is made up of at least 75% Latino and immigrant kids. Many have heard of climate disruption but just as many have not or only slightly.  Many also have family trauma and poverty.  I don't feel that I would teach them about the climate crisis except in a broad way, though I could be wrong about that. I do respond to their questions about it honestly and gently.  My overarching question is,  what can I do to prepare them?

Why Discussing Death Can Help Us With Life

Many people who receive a terminal diagnosis report experiencing a kind of renewal, a ‘coming back to life’. Suddenly being invited to reflect on one’s life can have the effect of bringing into focus what really matters, and bringing a sense of clarity and forgiveness to one’s relationships, and often one’s regrets. If you are… Continue reading Why… Continue

Restoration of Ancient Wisdom in a time of Pandemic

A guest blog from deep adaptation advocate Jilani Prescott. In the current situation, many people are being faced with difficult feelings: anxiety, fear, grief, confusion, frustration.

Deeply Adapting Diets – meat-free or self-sufficiency?
