Open Dialogue: An Effective New Paradigm for Working with Psychosis

  • Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center 219 South Harrison Road East Lansing, MI, 48824 United States (map)

Course Description:

Open Dialogue family and network therapy is an evidence-based psychosocial approach to helping people experiencing altered mental states known as schizophrenia. In this workshop, you will explore the assumptions, structure, goals, and “sound and feel” of dialogue in practice, as well as the ideal social context for providing dialogue. You will also learn about the research and the outcomes that have established Open Dialogue as an effective approach to helping people in deep psychiatric crisis. You will compare and contrast the differences and similarities between dialogic practice and the typical standard of care. Experiential exercises, film clips, and vignettes will help illustrate the paradigm shift that Open Dialogue represents in clinical work.
