A four day Open Dialogue Teaching and Training Seminar
Open Dialogue is a resource-oriented approach to mental health, which aims at mobilising psychosocial resources in a crisis-struck person’s social network. It operates on the basis of core humanistic values of openness, social inclusion, and personal autonomy and genuine user and family involvement in the decision-making processes. Open Dialogue includes a particular dialogical approach to psychotherapy and an emphasis on organising responsive and seamless healthcare pathways.
We are presenting a four-day Open Dialogue Training Seminar where Scandinavian expert trainers will present core theoretical principles and teach Open Dialogue psychotherapeutic skills through hands-on training exercises.
The teachers are Jaana Castella and Kari Valtanen.
