New Rochelle, NY, April 15, 2016—A new ecopsychology tool, with roots in the environmental justice movement, aims to break patterns of racial and social injustice that, combined with ecologically unsustainable development, continue to fragment and damage the planet and individuals. The Breakthrough Compass, a model designed to facilitate transformation of the self and the world, is described in Ecopsychology, a peer-reviewed, online journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free for download on the Ecopsychology website until May 15, 2016.
M. Paloma Pavel, Earth House Center, and Carl Anthony, Breakthrough Communities, Oakland, CA, present the basis for developing the Breakthrough Compass, its purpose and how it can be implemented in the article entitled “Building Just and Resilient Communities: New Foundations for Ecopsychology.” Among the current challenges facing communities are “the school-to-prison pipeline” and the growing fragmentation in society, in particular in metropolitan regions. The authors describe the five stages of the Breakthrough Compass and provide strategies and tools for navigating the model.
“Their ideas are important, visionary, and practical. The first stage in their model – we need to wake up!” says Editor-in-Chief Peter H. Kahn, Jr., PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology and School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.
