"Ecopsychology" with Carl Anthony

Environmental justice activist Carl Anthony talks about the way in which our understanding of nature can provide a new vision of the struggle for racial and social justice.

Ecopsychology tells us that the healing of the self, and the healing of the planet are intertwined. Carl contends that there is an Ecopsychological blind spot in the United States, due to its Eurocentric perspective, which as has been based on the dominance paradigm. The “self” that ecopsychology needs to address, is a multi-cultural self, with many voices and many perspectives.
