A basic tenet of the field is that, our inner worlds and the outer world are, intimately connected. The need for nature still, resides in our bodies, minds, and spirit. From an, ecotherapy perspective, a central challenge of our, time is the integration of our connection with, nature with our scientific culture and our, technological selves. As such, ecotherapy has a, role to play in addressing such issues as the, decreased presence of nature in our lives; the, exponential growth of technology in daily living;, and the impact of global climate change.
