What is Ecological Psychology?
During the first twenty minutes or so, I will provide a basic overview of ecological psychology (ecopsychology) and its educative approach to unearthing narratives underpinning destructive practices. We’ll briefly explore how humans are ecological and how the constructs of one’s narrative can be explored ecologically.

How it Matters 
I will use one of the ecological processes to demonstrate how it is also a psychological process plus ways to work with the process in exploring a narrative. The objective is to provide participants with a basic overview for how to change narrative and thus change behavior.
