  1. Provide an in-depth understanding of the key elements of Dialogic Practice and Open Dialogue.
  2. Foster the clinical skills of therapeutic responsiveness and reflection.
  3. Give a broad overview of the evolution of Dialogic Practice in the family therapy tradition that, founded on Gregory Bateson’s work, made language and communication central to the therapeutic process.
  4. Integrate social justice issues that are particularly relevant to North American society, including survivorship, gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and diversity.
  5. Cultivate the creativity of the participants as they adapt these new learnings to their own personal styles and settings.
  6. Examine the ethics of Dialogic Practice and Open Dialogue.

The curriculum will include a combination of lectures, experiential exercises, a discussion of readings, role-plays, videotapes,  live consultations, family-of-origin work, and supervision.

CEUS will be available.
