Client: "My problem is that I always talk
Counselor: "Not to worry; most people talk to themselves."
Client: "But Doctor, you don't know what a ding dong
"The state of the world
shows that most of us are ding dongs with respect to building
peaceful, environmentally and socially responsible relationships.
Where in our irresponsible society can a person find a responsible
source of information?" That is the thrust of a free, online,
nature-connected psychology course designed by Dr. Michael J.
Cohen, Director of Integrated Ecology at the Institute of Global
Education, a special NGO consultant to the United Nations Economic
and Social Council. There, Cohen, an Ecopsychologist, serves
as faculty to two online Universities
The course at http://www.ecopsych.com/eco400green.html
provides links to free knowledge and processes on the web that
make responsible life relationship information readily available.
Course participants trust the
information the course offers because, unlike hearsay or book
learning, they experience it first hand to register its truth.
They accomplish this by making genuine sensory contacts with
intact ecosystems, backyard or backcountry. Improved wellness,
personal and environmental relationships result from this connection.
The free course addresses the
significant questions we face that underlie our unsolveable problems.

of ten books on the subject. "Our troubles persist because

programs and uninformed educators?

that produces environmentally and socially destructive economic
STRESS: What is the difference
between a fact, a thought and a feeling?
WAR: Why do we continue to
assault nature and people when it doesn't make sense and we neither
like doing it nor its hurtful effects?
INTELLIGENCE: How can we restore
to our thinking the missing 48 sensory intelligences that contemporary
society has buried in our subconscious?
NATURAL SYSTEMS: Why does contemporary
society often identify a person's love of nature as "escapist
recreation and fuzzy thinking" rather than "peaceful
CORE CHALLENGE: Is our basic
problem that we deny that we are addicted to stories, technologies
and relationships that separate us from nature's balanced ways
