“I’m keen to work with an attitude of ‘dialogizing’ professional ideas. In training contexts I’m very interested in the therapeutic use of self. How as a therapist should I (and could) be, act and relate with my clients in such way they would find our co-work useful? …. How could I talk in a way that increases others’ desire to listen and how could I listen in a way that increases others’ desire to talk?”
Mary Olson, Ph.D. is an accomplished presenter who frequently speaks on Open Dialogue and Dialogic Practice to fellow therapists, university professors and students.

Dialogic Practice is an innovative approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes listening carefully to what people say so that they feel heard, respected, and validated. This conversation, or dialogue, is not “about” the person, but is instead a way of “being with” the person and living through the situation together.
As soon as possible in a given situation, the team gathers everyone connected to the crisis. There are no separate staff meetings to talk about the “case.” Rather, all discussion and any decisions about medication and hospitalization take place with everyone present.
