Psychosocial and Ecological Decline and Intergrative Education" on 14th September, 2017

As part of AURO University's distinguished lecture series, Prof. Werner Sattmann-Frese gave a talk on "Psychosocial and Ecological Decline and Intergrative Education" on 14th September, 2017.

There is among psychologically trained professionals an increasing conviction that our current efforts to enhance social responsibility and positive ecological change are failing. The increasing public support for populist politicians, the unconsciously projected hate against refugees and the multifaceted increase in narcissistic perceptions and behaviours suggest that ecological consciousness is decreasing, not increasing. The increased use of alternative energies in a few countries constitute important progress but are unlikely to have a strong impact on key drivers of ecological and social decline such as extreme economic inequality.

In Part One of the presentation entitled ‘Psychosocial and Ecological Decline and Integrative Education’ takes a bird’s-eye view of our current psychosocial and ecological problems and explores some of the drivers of these problems. Part Two argues for a psycho-educational approach to enhancing sustainable living skills and outlines the structure for a series of seminars designed to enhance personal growth and ecological consciousness.
