Staying Engaged in the Climate & Bushfire Crisis


A collection of psychological ideas and resources in response to the 2020 Australian Bushfires. Our hope is that these resources will inspire you to explore different ways of meeting the bushfire crisis and to support you to sustain your love for life and your engagement with climate change. The resources selected are those that we ourselves are tapping into in order to support ourselves.

Facing the Heat: stories of climate change conversations 


In March 2015, at our Conference we launched our second booklet - on conversations about climate change. This booklet takes the audience on a journey as we share some of our stories and learnings from climate change conversations.


What George Marshall said about the booklet: 'The most powerful climate change communication comes in the form of personal  stories that express commitment and conviction. For people who refuse to accept the underlying science this may be the only way to reach and persuade them.  Psychology for a Safe Climate's new booklet is built of such stories, reminding us that conversations and negotiations between friends and workmates may be as important for social change as the fattest scientific report.'




Cost is $10 including postage in Australia.

Coping with Climate Change Distress.


Psychology for a Safe Climate together with the Australian Psychological Society, The Climate Reality Project and the Australian Conservation Foundation have written a guide to help people cope with climate change distress.


The booklet begins by acknowledging that knowing about climate change is not enough for most people to take action. Feeling it as a threat is important, and having ways of coping with these feelings is vital so that people don’t become overwhelmed, or avoid the feelings, or burn out. The booklet provides helpful tips to keep our lives functioning well while staying engaged with climate change.




Cost is $10 each including postage in Australia.
