[LISTEN] How your relationship with nature affects your psychology
Ecopsychiolgy is a relatively new field despite traditional cultures having practised it over many years, says ecopsychologist Andrea Marais-Potgieter.
The discipline explores the relationship between human beings and the natural world.
Marais-Potgieter elaborates on the effect of nature on one's psychology.
What my study found is that the way we grow up as children and the time we spend in nature has a direct impact on later in our lives - how resilient we are generally speaking and also how we see and feel about nature.Andrea Marais-Potgieter, Ecopsychologist
I saw an explorer kind of typology coming out, what was fascinating about these types of people is that they value universalism - when the value nature, they tend to value other people because they are open to the world.Andrea Marais-Potgieter, Ecopsychologist
