Context is everything?

Recently, I have been wondering about how psychotherapy can have something to say about the state of the environment. In other words, I worry that what happens in my office has no effect on the outside world.

Sure, I help people to live better, more satisfying lives and this is a good thing. At the same time, given the state of the world: population, global warming etc. I worry that my worries about these things are unaffected - at least directly - by the work that I do.

I'm not sure where my thoughts will take me, but it is on my mind, and I wonder if it should be on other therapist's minds.
