Environmental Psychology is a perspective and series of methods that allow the practitioner to study, understand and address the human–environment relationship. As an Environmental Psychologist, I have the tools and expertise to:
- Reveal the underlying influences and significance of places and events on a person’s (or group of people’s) behavior or beliefs
- Uncover the unwritten, intended and unintentional rules and behavior codes of various spaces and places;
- Illuminate and analyze the ways that different groups of people use similar and different spaces;
- Assess whether spaces (and the objects contained therein) convey and promote the intended function, ambiance, and code of behavioral norms
My expertise lay in planning and building ecologically sustainable restorative environments which support psychological, emotional, physical, well-being, and promote sacred sociality.
Environmental Psychologists study everything about people in places: the ways that people learn, comprehend and conceptualize the layout, location or geography, and rules of their space; furthermore, we take a sophisticated approach to the way people [learn to] navigate through, behave in, or relate to people and objects within their environment.
