Abstract or Description

This editorial introduces 6 peer-reviewed articles that, as a collective, call for paradigm shifts that bring environmental justice and embodied practices into sharp focus in relation to Dance Movement Psychotherapy, Body Psychotherapy and other psychotherapeutic and environmental practices. The editorial highlights how ecofeminist, posthuman perspectives refuse positivist dogma that suggests that wellbeing to be solely in the hands of the individual, moving towards a collective ethical responsibility to tread through the world with care, empathy and compassion. The wellbeing of individuals and the health of the planet are mutually implicated.
