We've all heard the bad news: global warming, mass extinction, dwindling natural resources and wars fought to possess them. But what does it all mean? How are we to make sense of the big picture? Craig Chalquist is department chair of East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies and a former core faculty member in the Department of Consciousness & Transformative Studies at John F. Kennedy University. He is an academic adviser and adjunct faculty at Antioch University, Prescott College, and Pacifica Graduate Institute and the online General Psychology instructor for College of the Siskiyous. Dr. Chalquist has worked as a family therapist, conflict resolution facilitator, lecturer, and group facilitator. He earned his PhD at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where he studied depth psychology with an ecological approach. While working as a therapist he spent six years providing group counseling for men and women referred for mandatory therapy. In October of 2010 he launched a one-year Certificate in Ecotherapy at JFK University, and designed the curriculum for a Certificate in Ecotherapy and Sustainable Culture for The Graduate Institute in Connecticut.
