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.

  • 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?

  • Hi Caroline :-). Forward question: how do you see/feel panic, anxiety and depression as subtle variations of denial? And how do you work with these while realising we may literally only have a couple of years?

  • Will this be recorded for listening afterwards? I think it's at 1am in my timezone.
