Ecological Psychology : New Trends and Innovations


Ecological Psychology : New Trends and Innovations

By Rajpal Kaur

Psychology is not the first profession one thinks of when looking for environmental activists. In fact, much of this is a primer in what a psychologist who specialises in self-determination, calls "the five characteristics of sustainable lifestyle"- conservation, recycling, renewable resource use, restoration and population control. While he does make a good point that the excessive consumption is accompanied by a large degree of self-imposed blindness, much of the rest will be familiar to readers versed in environmental issues. Experimental psychologists have typically focused on -understanding the mechanisms of behaviour, leaving analysis of meaning and value to clinicians and to introspection. A combination of ecological and experimental methods can help us better understand the meaningful aspects of everyday life.
