Are We Loosing Our Connection to Nature in a Virtual World? 

with Sarah Pagdin, Sharon Miller, Katja Molnar, Vivian Fracesco and Susan Simpson

Perhaps Schema Therapy can foster reconnection with a Healthy Adult approach to real environmental concerns.

What are our immediate responses when we hear mention of anything to do with environmental concerns? Staring at our screens all day, do we think “Maybe some other time?” Could this casual response be harbouring a maladaptive avoidant coping style such as a detached protector mode or a compliant surrender mode? Do we simply recognize the emotions of a terrified vulnerable child? 

Maybe we are inclined to find ourselves in demanding, punitive mode berating ourselves and others for not doing more? These responses and many others may certainly resonate with us as the environmental crisis thrusts itself into our awareness.

The ISST Environmental Awareness and Action Committee invites us to consider together what a healthy adult response to environmental crisis might look like for ourselves, our clients and our communities. As Schema therapists we have a unique opportunity to encourage healthy growth and change in this arena, as we enlist the skills we already possess along with our very fitting model as a framework to foster inspiration and guidance.
