In this event, Nick Putman and Richard Armitage will introduce the Open
Dialogue approach, the seven principles that underlie it, and the practice of
facilitating network meetings, including the 12 elements of dialogic practice.
There will be opportunity for discussion.
Open Dialogue is an approach to integrated healthcare service delivery and a philosophical approach to caring for people experiencing a mental health crisis and their families and social networks. Originally developed in Finland, Open Dialogue has been adopted by health services worldwide, and more recently introduced to Australia. In 2017, a foundation training program in Open Dialogue was run in Queensland. In this program, clinicians and peer workers trained alongside each other so that they could work together with families in crisis
using the approach. In addition, from November 2017, a three-year Open Dialogue training program will commence at St. Vincent’s Hospitals Sydney.
