This comprehensive course is designed for working professionals from any vocation or occupational field who wish to gain a comprehensive understanding of ecopsychology and its applications for daily life, business, executive management, health care, governance and policy, education and training, coaching and facilitation.
An ecopsychological understanding widens perspectives and enhances the capacity for making informed and mature decisions essential to our daily life, our businesses, organizations, and communities in ways that ensure more connected and sustainable behaviors and practices emerge.
Students will examine the interdependence of ecological sustainability – organizational sustainability – psychological sustainability. Students who are becoming sustainability leaders are compelled to make a difference by deepening their awareness of themselves in relation to the world around them. In doing so, they adopt new ways of seeing, thinking and interacting that result in innovative, sustainable solutions.

Student Commentary on the Course:
When I first enrolled for this course, I thought about how we might be learning how to live more cooperatively with nature. Having completed the course … I was way off the mark. It was much more profound. In addition to examining the split between humans and nature, we dissected our worldview and I realized the split between my inner from the outer is what captured my attention so vividly.
In looking back on this course, perhaps the most profound understanding I have realized is the impact my actions have had on others around me. The interconnectedness I share with those around me now mandates a different point of view based on this new found knowledge.
We look forward to your participation.
