Greta Thunberg: Who is the Swedish environmental activist?
20 A psychologist says he’s worried about her
After giving a speech on climate change in New York last Tuesday, Greta seems to have caught the attention of a famous Australian psychologist, Dr Carr-Gregg who thinks that a child should not be used as a ‘political props’.
Dr Carr-Gregg said: ‘I worry about her going the same as child TV stars, that they just burn out and potentially have a disastrous psychological outcome'[…]. He also added: ‘She’s now put herself at the centre of worldwide either Greta-phobia or Greta-mania and I don’t think any 16-year-old girl should be’.
He is concerned that the enormous pressure on his shoulders may end up causing him unnecessary stress and depression.
