Failure to focus on helping people deal with the mental health and psychosocial aspects of climate disruption will seriously impair the safety and health of individuals as well as the security and social wellbeing of organizations, communities and whole societies for generations to come. It will also seriously delay efforts to reduce the impacts of climate disruption to manageable levels.Doppelt begins by describing how natural human psychobiological reactions to climate disruption damage the psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing of individuals, organizations, communities and whole societies. Using his own organizations Transformational Resilience program as an example, the author describes methods and skills that may be used to build capacity within all levels of societies to alleviate the acute traumas and toxic stresses of climate change.Using the authors extensive experience of advising public, private and non-profit sectors on using behavioral and systems change knowledge and tools, this book applies a new lens to the question of how to successfully respond to climate change.
