About the Institute

The only North American teaching facility that specializes in providing world-class training in Open Dialogue and Dialogic Practice delivered by the field’s leading experts and developers.

Dialogic Practice

Dialogic Practice is a client-centered form of psychotherapy that aims to be responsive to the needs of the whole person – rather than simply treating his or her symptoms.

Open Dialogue

Open Dialogue is an innovative approach to acute psychiatric crises developed by Jaakko Seikkula, Markku Sutela and their multidisciplinary team at Keropudas Hospital in Tornio, Finland.
