Chapter events - United States

In this event, we will explore the Systemic Design paradigm as an intersection between Systems Thinking, Depth Psychology and Mythology. We will also examine how Systemic Design can turn designing into a holistic and dynamic undertaking that is a conduit for intuition, imagination and creativity, and dives deep into the human dimension to understand and transform mental models of users and the designers.

About the Speaker: Arash Golnam, Ph.D. (He/Him)

I have a passion for multi-disciplinary approaches to inquiry. I explore the synergies between systems thinking, psychoanalysis, art, and service design. I completed my doctoral studies in systemic design at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and hold a Master of Science in System Dynamics from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I am Currently a Diploma Candidate in Psychoanalysis at CG Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland.

As a system dynamicist, I have worked on large scale simulation platforms of socio-technical systems in sustainability and circular economy domains. As an educator, I teach systems thinking, system dynamics and systemic design at Design Dissolve ( and at universities in Geneva and Lausanne area, where I have been awarded as the distinguished member of the faculty several times in the recent years. In my private psychoanalysis practice, I help my clients in their journeys of transformation and individuation towards self-realisation and the discovery and experience of meaning and purpose in life
