Chaos Theory in Relationships

Hi I do not get along with a relative, in fact we used to live together in same house but we have not spoken now for a good few years. Recently we spoke on the phone and she said to me that the reason we do not get along is because we both "buy" into the chaos theory. She is a psychologist by profession.
Her partner is an astro-physicist by profession so I am unsure whether chaos theory cud be related to psychology or to physics anyway I'd be most grateful if anyone cud shed some light on this as it is an important relationship which is not working, thanks.

Hi rgaines UK - you may like to check out 'Dynamical Psychology: Complexity, Self-Organization and Mind', by J. Friedenburg 2009, ISCE Publishing.
General comment in regards to chaos theory: let's not forget this theory was popularized with James Gleik's book 'Chaos: Making a New Science' in 1987 - a great deal more has happened in the area of complexity theory, complex adaptive systems, and complexity leadership theory over the past 24 years!
