Ecopsychotherapy, environmental movement and the imperative of embodied practice with the earth in mind

This special issue will celebrate research and practice that brings moving bodies to the foreground and combines this with a commitment to environmental justice. As the climate emergency quickens and becomes more visible, so does the realisation that the wellbeing of individuals and the health of the planet are mutually implicated. As mental health problems increase and environmental degradation escalates, now, more than ever, there is a need for embodied, empathic compassion for ourselves, each other and the earth that is our home. This belongs to a wider landscape of social, political and environmental justice.  

We invite practice-led research papers, case studies, clinical reflections, and theoretical essays from the prosaic to the poetic that locate mental health and wellbeing in the primacy of the moving body, in relation to a wider ecological context. We welcome contributions from interdisciplinary perspectives, such as environmental movement, dance movement psychotherapy, ecopsychotherapy, body psychotherapy, new materialism and posthumanism.
