    The effects of climate change can be direct or indirect, short-term or long-term. Acute events can act through mechanisms similar to that of traumatic stress, leading to well-understood psychopathological patterns. In addition, the consequences of exposure to extreme or prolonged weather-related events can also be delayed, encompassing disorders such as posttraumatic stress, or even transmitted to later generations. The lecture will summarise the current research findings in this highly important new field, which can help not only health care professionals but also policy-makers dealing with the potential devastating consequences of global warming.
