Project Description

Irina Feygina, Ph.D., is a social psychologist who specializes in the behavioral aspects of policy and program development and implementation for climate change mitigation and adaptation, clean technology adoption, energy efficiency, sustainability, environmental design and communication. As a process-oriented facilitator, Irina supports individuals and organizations to deepen self awareness, strengthen relationships and communication, and embrace conflict as a doorway to discovery and transformation. These tools are helpful for working on conflict and cooperation, overcoming skepticism and supporting engagement, moving from hopelessness to empowerment, and holding space for complex personal and community processes around this vast challenge.


Communicating in times of polarity

During this In Conversation event, Irina Feygina and Sandhya Dave explored the psychology behind polarisation and the deep identity processes that lead us to take strong positions and defend them vehemently.
