Abstract

This philosophical inquiry explores the use of eco-art therapy to address loneliness in youth living in a world flooded with digital technology. The purpose of this research is to better understand the issue and explore how eco-art therapy can address it. The literature on eco-art therapy and youth loneliness in our day and age is analyzed, synthesized, and woven together with concepts that relate these two major themes. This is done to establish the argument that eco-art therapy could be a promising approach to working with youth who have grown up in a digital age and who are suffering from the adverse effects of loneliness. In an increasingly virtual world in which youth are more digitally literate than ever before, it is important to consider the potential benefits of nature in counteracting the adverse effects of loneliness within the context of rapidly evolving digital technologies.
