Keynote Presentation – Caroline Hickman

Caroline Hickman is a psychotherapist who teaches at the University of Bath and is a member of the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) for whom she is creating a series of podcasts on Climate Psychology & Eco-Anxiety/Grief – ‘Climate Crisis Conversations – Catastrophe or Transformation’. She is currently researching children & young people’s feelings including eco-anxiety/grief about the climate and biodiversity crisis using a psychosocial free association methodology to uncover and explore different stories, narratives and images around our defences against the ‘difficult truth’ of the climate and bio-diversity crisis, and explore hidden and ‘less conscious’ feelings. She is passionate about getting ‘under the surface’ metaphorically and literally.
