My "Creative Maladjustment" Talk Now Online

I was just updating my resume for my annual performance review and was double checking the dates of the Psychology-Ecology-Sustainability conference at Lewis and Clark College--where I gave one of three keynote addresses in 2007. Well, by doing that web search, I learned that my entire talk, which was entitled "Creative Maladjustment: Activism as a Way of Healing Self, Society, and Planet," has been put online at Google Video by Lewis and Clark.

It is one of my favorite and most comprehensive public talks, so I'm including the video below in case anyone is interested. You really have to want to watch it to click on it, though, as the talk is about 75 minutes long and the first four or five minutes are plagued by some minor sound problems (which can be skipped though). Still, once I get rolling, I tell some of my best stories and I speak fairly comprehensively about the politics of creating a "psychologically smart" social movement for ecological sustainability and environmental justice. So, hey, I'm just putting it out there for folks in case any of you are interested...
