In this one day online seminar Nick Putman will introduce the Open Dialogue approach using presentations 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 12 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.
Given current restrictions in the UK related to the coronavirus pandemic, this seminar will be conducted online, using Zoom software, which allows for breakout rooms for small group discussions. Further information will be provided to participants regarding the use of Zoom.
