Psychological Contributions to Advancing Global Health

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Achieving global health requires attention to the interdependency of the health and wellbeing of nature and its inhabitants. As outlined by the DPSIR (Drivers, Pressures, States, Impacts, and Response) model, achieving this goal will be aided by a better understanding of (a) human and natural drivers of geophysical pressures that alter environmental states, (b) the impacts of environmental conditions on human and nonhuman life, and (c) responses that can be made to alter drivers, pressures, states, and impacts. Yet, the model could be expanded to consider psychological perspectives and social contexts more explicitly. This introductory article integrates these perspectives into the DPSIR model.
