A Symposium on Collaborative Practices
in Organizations, Therapy, Education and Research

Presenter: Harlene Anderson, Ph.D.
Hotel Las Palapas
Playa del Carmen
Mayan Riviera, Mexico


Join Harlene Anderson and her Grupo Campos Eliseos colleagues in Simply Paradise for a unique in-depth learning opportunity: Enjoy their warm hospitality and immerse yourself in a week of exploring postmodern/social construction collaborative philosophy and practices with people from around the world. Learn about the heart and spirit of collaborative practices -a philosophical stance-and see it in action. The Mayan Riviera (www.mayanriviera.com & www.yucatan.com) and Hotel Las Palapas (www.laspalapas.com) beach resort atmosphere of lazy afternoons and summer evenings provide ample time for the beach, cultural activities, networking, small conversational clusters, and informal opportunities to consult with Harlene and her colleagues.

Harlene Anderson and Harry Goolishian developed and introduced a postmodern collaborative therapy: Harlene continues to broaden and deepen her collaborative approach and to apply it to training, research, mentoring and organizational consultation. The Summer Institute continues to be a significant contribution to this effort. Importantly, it continues to provide a space for practitioners to learn, share their work with others and further develop the growing international community of collaborative practitioners.

The 2012 Institute is designed to meet the needs of participants with extensive experience in collaborative practice and those new to it. The symposium format will immerse participants in collaborative ideas and practices through: didactic presentations, small workshops by international guests that demonstrate the application of collaborative practices in a variety of contexts and with various client populations, live consultations, special topic interest groups, experiential exercises, and networking

International Guest Presentations highlight innovative collaborative practices in a variety of contexts and populations. Conversational Circles: Special topic interest groups are designed by the participants based on their interests - the meet during scheduled times and during leisure time as well. Past topics ncluded supervision and training, research, special client populations (i.e., children, couples, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc.), working in organizations, coaching and more.
