Paul Maiteny

Two key questions have been with me since childhood: why are humans so cruel and destructive to each other and other species; and what might our human role be as members of the ecosystemic web? These have informed my life and work - in ecological education and habitat management, research in ecological anthropology, organisational and consumer behaviour (at UCL, Oxford, Open & Bocconi [Milan] Universities), and psychotherapy practice that integrates ecological and transpersonal understanding. I also tutor transpersonal ecopsychology, psychotherapy research methods and education for sustainability (since 1995) on Masters degrees. Publications include: Ancestral warnings of ecosystemic holocaust, its psychospiritual causes, and clues to resolution (Self & Society) Longing to be Human: evolving ourselves in healing the Earth (Rust & Totton ed. Vital Signs), Finding Meaning without Consuming, Psychotherapy as an Eco-Systemic Activity (The Psychotherapist, Winter 2008/9).
