“Chaos theory focuses on the dynamics of the system as a whole, on what the parts are doing all together, rather than individually. It challenges us to see the universe as a spontaneous, flowing, whole process, an interconnecting web of relationships. Such a world view discourages us from seeing depression as an isolated, totally undesirable symptom to be alleviated as soon as possible. Instead we are compelled to wonder how depression fits into the overall process of change. In the human psyche, tempestuous emotional states generate a creative tension between chaos and order that is vital to the richly complex process of human psychological growth…When we accept the transformative potential of chaos, we often find that our original difficulties were caused by our clinging inflexibly to our habitual way of ordering our world....When we protect ourselves from chaos we cut ourselves off from the flow of life. Eventually this may precipitate depression. Learning to face chaos is an integral step on the way to transforming depression into a new, more adaptive order.”
