Eco worriers | the rise of eco-anxiety

Hello fam! 

Welcome back to part two of our environmental psychology episodes.
 In this ep we discuss the rise of eco-anxiety, the associated cognitive dissonance that comes with ecological and environmental anxiety, when does your worry start to slip into a clinical diagnosis of anxiety, plus some techniques to cope if you are feeling anxious and overwhelmed. 

We also answer some listener questions from others who may be feeling anxious about the changing climate and environment. 

Please remember this advice is not personalised and is general in nature. If you are feeling anxious or concerned about climate change and the environment please seek professional psychological support, or call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
