CSPP FAIRFIELD COUNTY SPRING MEETING

SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2019  

2 PM – 4 PM


“CLIMATE CHANGE: NOW WE SEE, THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY”




A PRESENTATION BY ELIZABETH ALLURED PSYD AND MERRITT JULIANO JD LMSW


Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) is an international organization working to increase awareness of our unfolding climate crisis using various depth psychologies.  As members of CPA, and leaders of the newly formed Climate Psychology Alliance North America (CPA-NA), Elizabeth and Merritt will discuss the global climate emergency as perceived through many lenses, including the economic, the socio-cultural, the psychoanalytic, and field theory, which sees us as inextricably linked to all seemingly separate elements within a gestalt.  The following questions will be discussed:

  • (1)   How can we begin to acknowledge our intersubjectivity within the natural world?
  • (2)   How can we, as mental health professionals, help our patients acknowledge, mitigate and adapt to the growing climate crisis?
  • (3)    How can we find peace with our voluntary and involuntary participation in a system that is causing the climate crisis?

Elizabeth is a psychologist/psychoanalyst practicing in Port Washington, NY.  She is on the teaching faculty at the Suffolk Institute, and at Adelphi University’s postgraduate programs in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.  She has published papers on the relationship between mental health and the nonhuman environment, and has been presenting ideas about this relationship at international conferences since 2007. 

Merritt is a clinician working to promote positive attachment outcomes and encourage reflective functioning in mother-infant dyads in the Minding the Baby program at Family Centers in Stamford and Greenwich.  Merritt holds a particular interest in the mind-body and social-psycho impacts of climate change on mothers and children.
