Ecopsychepedia Categories

If you are looking for a range of entries related to a particular theme, such as topics related to climate emotions or denial, you can explore entries by category.

The Ecopsychepedia is a growing project. Over time, we will build out these categories into comprehensive information sources.

The Ecopsychepedia is organized into nine categories:


When people resist recognizing and responding to the climate crisis.

Climate emotions

Being in touch with what we feel can help us manage climate distress, which in turn can help drive us to take action.

Equality and justice

In the climate crisis, addressing inequalities is a top priority.

The power of culture

We all are immersed in culture, and influenced by culture, often without recognizing its powerful effect on how we think, feel, and behave.

Nature as healer

Nature has a cornucopia of charms, tricks and secrets, which, even if we’re not consciously aware of it, powerfully influence how we function.


Positive relationships provide the fuel to help us stay the course.

Resilience and regeneration

Becoming climate resilient involves learning to cope with the difficult impacts of the climate crisis, while also being open to the possibility of fulfillment and joy.

Mental health impacts

The climate crisis is a mental health crisis.

Success stories

Stories of adversities overcome, of vistas restored, of scientific innovations discovered, of new solutions found, of heroes rising up to fight for justice.
