In this one day workshop Nick Putman will introduce the Open Dialogue approach using presentations, reflective exercises and dialogues. Participants can expect to gain a fuller understanding of the approach, the philosophy that underpins it, and how it relates to, and can inform their current working practices. There are just 16 places on this seminar, in order to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in the conversations about the approach and in small group exercises.
We welcome mental health professionals, service users/people with lived experience of mental health problems, carers and anyone who has an interest in mental health (services) at this seminar.
Topics to include:
CPD Certificates will be sent to all attendees (6 hours). Refreshments will be provided on arrival and during the course of the day (tea, fresh coffee, mineral water, fruit and snacks). You are welcome to bring lunch to eat at the venue, or there are plenty of cafés/restaurants nearby where you can get lunch. The nearest underground station is Old Street.
