Could transformative technology change our mental health and the world for the better? with Nichol Bradford

[The Intentional Clinician Episode 65]

Nichol Bradford and Paul Krauss MA LPC have a discussion on The Intentional Clinician about technology and the emerging field of health & wellness monitoring technology. Many individuals are concerned that recent technology is replacing many of our career positions. However, Nichol highlights that nothing can replace good human interaction, especially in the case of psychotherapy. Modern technology is being used to track our health, helping us stay proactive rather than reactive. This helps patients make good decisions in the moment, but it also gives health providers more time to focus on the important things. Technology can also keep us connected when it is not possible to physically meet. While meeting virtually is not ideal, it is certainly more beneficial than not having any social engagement at all. In educational settings as well, technology can be used to teach children more information when there might not be the funds to employ enough teachers to effectively instruct them.

Nichol Bradford is fascinated by human potential and technology. She is the CEO & Founder of the Willow Group and the Executive Director and co-founder of the Transformative Technology Lab, Conference and TT200 List. Prior to becoming a leader in Transformative Technology, Bradford was a senior executive in video games with responsibility for strategy, operations and marketing for major brands that include: Activision Blizzard, Disney, and Vivendi Games — including operating World of Warcraft China.

Nichol is a graduate of Singularity University GSP15 and has an MBA from Wharton School of Business in Strategy and a BBA in Marketing from the University of Houston. She is a fellow of the British American Project, has served on the board of the Brandon Marshall Foundation for Mental Health, and is a former term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

She speaks regularly on Transformation, Exponential Technology, and Culture at conferences like Singularity University’s Global Summit, Exponential Medicine, Katapult Future Fest, Wisdom 2.0 and more.
