A revision of Winter’s Ecological Psychology (1996), this book applies psychological theory and research to environmental problems. The authors demonstrate how six major approaches in psychology (social psychological, psychoanalytic, behavioural, physiological, cognitive, and holistic) can be applied to environmental problems. Written for psychology and environmental studies students, the book is an excellent teaching tool in courses on environmental, conservation, or ecological issues, found in departments of psychology, sociology, environmental science, and biology. It will also appeal to anyone interested in psychology’s potential contributions to mounting ecological difficulties.
