In Episode 44 Gabby speaks with Dr Kim Graham about her research into Complexity Science.
Kim has a PhD at the University of Technology Sydney, Master of Psychotherapy from Cairnmillar Institute, a Bachelor of Science (Honours in Psychology) from Monash University, & a Bachelor of Health Science from Charles Sturt Uni. She has worked in a variety of roles, including as a Psychologist, a Family Therapist, a Drug & Alcohol Counsellor, Disability Support Case Worker, Foster Carer Trainer, Senior Lecturer, & in private practice as a psychotherapist & naturopath.
Some key points from the conversation include:
What complexity science is
The difference between a mechanistic or reductionist way of looking at things compared to seeing things through a holistic lens
How complexity & holism are similar as well as what distinguishes them
How change in one area of a system can affect things across the entire system (using the human body & changes to health as an example)
How humans are connected systems as individuals, but so are communities (human or otherwise)
As a species we have a primal yearning for connection
