Product description


This important new anthology integrates ecotherapy theory, practice and research to offer a range of approaches for establishing healing relations with the natural world. Ecotherapy's move beyond an outdated, mechanistic view of self as separate from world has implications and consequences as immediate as personal health and as wide as an Earth-honoring worldview. - Craig Chalquist, Professor and Department Chair of East-West Psychology, California Institute of Integral Studies, USA For the practitioner of the 21st Century, there is no greater calling than tending the relationship between personal health and ecological well-being. No longer may the two be separated. Organized seamlessly, Ecotherapy brings together conceptual and applied writings from experts in the field - a must-read 'toolkit' for students and mentors in all fields of study. - Stephen Aizenstat, Chancellor & Founding President, Pacifica Graduate Institute, USA

Product Description

The idea of using nature to improve mental and emotional wellbeing has existed for many years, in many forms. However, growing levels of interest in holistic, reciprocal relationships with nature have led to the development of an explicit field, termed Ecotherapy.

In this thought-provoking new book, Martin Jordan and Joe Hinds provide a comprehensive exploration of this emerging area of practice. Divided into three parts, the book offers a unique examination of a range of theoretical perspectives, unpacks the latest research and provides a wealth of illuminating practice examples, with a number of chapters dedicated to authors' own first-hand experiences of the positive psychological effects of having contact with nature.

Topics covered include:

• The foundations of ecotherapy, including how it can be defined, its relation to psychotherapy and ecopsychology, and the research and various theory bases that inform it

• The benefits of incorporating nature into palliative care

• Nature as a tool for crisis recovery

• Nature-based therapy for stress-related disorders

• The use of nature to promote optimal functioning, with a focus on areas such as generative experiences, emotional development and exploration, autonomy and a sense of belonging.

Written by a collection of leading experts from around the globe, Ecotherapy is a vital introduction to this fast-developing area of therapeutic practice.
