To enroll in a course at the Institute for Dialogic Practice, you must have a Master’s degree in social work, family therapy, mental health counseling, or psychiatric nursing; a doctorate in psychology; or a medical degree in psychiatry or primary care. Exceptions to these academic requirements may be made for those with substantial work experience in the mental health field who are enrolling as a member of a team. Graduate students are admitted to the introductory intensive with proof of enrollment.

CEUs are awarded for social workers, nurses, family therapists and licensed mental health workers. We are currently applying for accreditation as a continuing education provider for physicians and psychologists.
I, the peer and the family therapist have had many wonderful network meetings with different types of families all throughout Brooklyn. The work so far has only deepened my confidence in the need for this type of dialogic and network based approach; that it can be applied in context very different from Lapland and other parts of Europe. The majority of the families are grateful for the approach – for its patience, it kindness and intimacy.
