Romania 1st Green Psy Camp 2015
Green psychology or Eco psychology demonstrates the role of nature, the natural environment as a factor for emotional regulation and impact on our sense of well. Theodore Roszak is the one who coined the term in 1992 in his book “The Voice of the Earth“. This was the signal for the development of an area where psychology to examine because the man behave is so environmentally irresponsibil and encourage environmental movement to find ways to motivate people to act in ways more positive (optimistic) than agressive protest.
Green psychology demonstrates the natural impact on physical and mental health / psychological are in constant interrelation. Studies have shown that “ordinary” walking in nature mental measurable benefits. A recent study based on quantifiable evidence finds that walking in nature can lead to a lower risk of depression. The study, published in the “Proceedings” of the National Academy of Sciences, found that the people who walk in a natural area, unlike other participants in the study walked in an urban setting, they decreased brain activity in her brain region associated with a key factor in depression.
These recent studies have shown that increased incidence of mental disorders such as depression due to increased urbanization of the environment and human disconnection from nature. The findings show that people in cities at risk of approx. 20 percent higher risk of anxiety disorders and approx. 40 percent higher for mood disorders, compared to people in rural areas. Even people born and reared in cities are twice as likely to develop schizophrenia.
