Our work with families/networks
We work with families/networks using many of the Open Dialogue principles and the philosophy that informs the approach. This work takes place in our new premises in Dalston, London. Nick Putman is a certified Open Dialogue practitioner and is working with participants on the first full Open Dialogue training programme being run in the UK, including Monica Cabello, Paul Ekwuruke and Rachel Waddingham (see biographies below). This work is supervised by Jaakko Seikkula, Mary Olson and senior members of the Open Dialogue team from Western Lapland. In addition to this Nick, and participants on the full training, are also working with some trainees on our first foundation training programme. This means that we are now able to offer family/network meetings on a sliding scale. As well as meetings in Dalston, we can also arrange home visits within the London area. If you are interested in working with us please contact us via the form on this website.
We are sometimes able to offer free consultations to families/networks who are willing and able to take part in sessions where a group of trainees are present (as part of supervision days on the full Open Dialogue training programme running in London). We are also working towards starting research into the Open Dialogue approach, and will be able to offer free sessions as part of this process. Please contact us if you are interested in such sessions/consultations.
