Collaborative-Dialogic Practice Symposium

Collaborative-Dialogic Practice Across Contexts and Cultures Symposium

4.5 Hours of CE

On October 15 and 22, 2022, Harlene Anderson and Diane Gehart held a symposium featuring the contributors to their book Collaborative-Dialogic Practice: Relationships and Conversations Across Contexts and Cultures. The symposium includes conversations with leading experts from around the world using collaborative-dialogic practices in contemporary practice contexts, including therapy, business, medicine, education, research, indigenous communities, social advocacy, climate advocacy, and daily life. During this symposium, you will be inspired to think of new ways to form relationships that uplift the humanity of all while simultaneously discovering new ways to engage even the most daunting challenges.

In this online course, counselors, therapists, and social workers will view the entire recorded symposium and receive continuing education hours from the NBCC and CAMFT.

Unfortunately, this workshop is not approved for continuing education for psychologists.

Have you ever wondered how to successfully communicate with someone who sees the world from an entirely different angle than you do?

Often the chasm between those holding differing views seems impossible to navigate, even with the best of intentions.

Whether you work in a boardroom, schoolroom, therapy room, or community organizationCollaborative-Dialogic Practice offers a humanizing approach to facilitating dialogues that make a difference in our fast-changing, diverse, and ever-shrinking world.

These practices encourage relationships and conversations that create a generative space and promote meaningful transformations, even in the most difficult situations. This approach involves an epistemological and mindset shift in how we think about ourselves, the people we meet, what we do together, and how we do it. Grounded in social constructionism, the main feature of the practice, the philosophical stance, guides the professional in particular ways of being, talking, thinking, and acting with others.

Rather than assuming an expert position of authoritative knowledge, collaborative practitioners use curiosity, not-knowing, and uncertainty to engage others in meaningful dialogue that generates new understandings, informing future possibilities that were previously unimagined by either person alone.
