The papers in this Special Section of Ecopsychology explore the mechanisms and benefits of confronting antienvironmental (i.e., unsustainable) behaviors as a means to encourage more environmentally friendly behavior. Confronting is important because it is a means of socially regulating behaviors that affect the common good and increases the frequency of proenvironmental (i.e., conservation) behaviors. Studies explore the role of guilt activation in confronting, barriers to confronting, benefits and constraints regarding using praise versus confrontation, and risks of not confronting antienvironmental behavior when it occurs, particularly by people who are expected to be concerned about environmental problems.
