Dealing with change requires a SYSTEMIC and integrative approach.
For this reason, Ilaria does not have a preferred technique, nor does she bring complex methodologies to the table. Instead, she focuses on her work on the fundamentals of human change and how change happens in complex systems, integrating all the dimensions and considering their interaction. Her interest lies in understanding the relation and interconnection between brain, mind and sociocultural context with an emphasis on exploring the interplay of nature and nurture (combined effects of our nature genes and hereditary traits and external variables).
