Degrowth Psychology

A branch in a forest.

Recently, I presented some of my experiences from Clinical Psychology that I see as relevant to alternative economic models. The presentation served as a vignette to a group discussion we had afterwards (at the Stockholm Resilience Center) about possible future scenarios, which go beyond the framework of the current economic system, i.e. the system that has made GDP growth an end in itself.

A video recording from the talk: postgrowthpsych_20231207.mp4

And the slides with references: postgrowthpsych_20231207.pdf

I thought it was important to bring psychology into the postgrowth discussions for several reasons. I will explore them in more detail in some future posts.
