Introduction to Open Dialogue

21 October 7:00pm-9:00pm AEDT (Available to all states please check your timezone conversion)

Open Dialogue is an innovative person-centred approach to mental-health counselling. Dialogical practice allows the individual, and members of their family and social network, to be heard, empowered, and actively involved in the individual’s recovery process.
Open Dialogue is used in mental health and social recovery settings in Scandinavia, the UK, the US and Australia.
This introductory session provides an overview of Open Dialogue and its techniques, many of which can be adapted to your own counselling practice.
