    IFS and Climate Change with Steffi Bednarek

    IFS and Climate Change with Steffi Bednarek

    On today's podcast I chat with Steffi Bednarek, climate psychologist and author of the new book "Climate, Psychology, and Change."
    In this episode we discuss:
    Climate change as an unintended consequence of Western mindsets and culture Individual and collective denial, distraction, and trauma responses to climate change through an IFS lens The importance of acknowledging collective silence around climate change and our role in maintaining or addressing it Bringing more awareness to exiled parts of ourselves and considering what therapists and practiioners leave at the "office door" The challenges of action-oriented responses to climate anxiety and the need for holistic, systemic solutions are examined Steffi invites listeners to get involved by having uncomfortable climate conversations and experimenting with new approaches With over 25 years of work experience in systemic change and trauma therapy, Steffi supports individuals, organisations and teams to address the urgent need for regenerative change in ways that go beyond the mere correction of what is visible on the surface.

Gratitude

I listen to all of Tammy’s episodes and get so much out of them. So grateful to her and her guests for giving so much of their knowledge, insights, time and expertise to this IFS community. Just listened to the last episode with Derek. Taking his Stepping Stones course, advanced weekends and watching his you tube videos has enlightened my experience as a human being. His courage to share his journey has already helped so many of my parts as well as the parts of my clients. He continues to show himself as an ancestral guide. Never could I have imagined that someone who I had no personal contact with could provide such clarity, courage and connection in my own system. I will feel forever grateful to him, his IFSCA team and to Tammy for allowing us to witness this beautiful interview 🤍🤍

Content is great - production not so much

The content is great, however the production is so awful that it distracts from the content. Random music is played over folks talking, there doesn’t feel like there is any structure or outline being followed. A lot of weird cuts and gaps within the podcasts that make me think the app has stopped working. I want to keep listening but it’s super hard to stay focused because of the production.
