Climate, Psychology, Conversation: the unconscious dynamics of how we talk about climate change.

How can we deal with the strong feelings climate change evokes in ourselves and in others? The experience of speaking out about this most urgent of issues, whether face to face or on social media, is fraught with conflict. How can we cope with the anger, avoidance or disbelief that erupts into relationships when the subject is introduced? Join is in a talk that will offer some insights from psychotherapy which may help.
