Description:
Beginning in the 70’s Harry Goolishian and Harlene Anderson invited a small group of professionals to Galveston for a week to think and work together around emerging collaborative-dialogic ideas and practices. These gatherings evolved into the International Summer Institute: a space for practitioners, researchers, scholars, and students to learn and share ideas and practices. Over the last twenty years the ISI convened in Mexico—as a bilingual event hosted by Harlene Anderson and Grupo Campos Eliseos colleagues--and grew in size and relevance within the international collaborative-dialogic community.

Join us in Galveston: immerse in exploring postmodern/social construction collaborative-dialogue philosophy and practices. Enjoy warm hospitality and interaction with people from around the world. Learn the heart and spirit of collaborative--dialogic practices--a philosophical stance: see and experience it in action. Have ample time for conversations with colleagues with participants from around the world.

Design: The Institute is a bilingual event: designed to meet the needs of participants with experience in collaborative practice and those who are new to it, whether seasoned practitioners or students. The symposium format allows for full immersion in collaborative-dialogue ideas and application to practice in a variety of contexts and cultures with various 'client' populations: didactic presentations, live consultations, dialogue spaces, conversational clusters, experiential exercises, networking and socials.

Benefit of attending the ISI:

• Study with Harlene Anderson and Grupo Campos Eliseos colleagues
• Expand your creativity and competency in postmodern / social construction collaborative-dialogue
• Revitalize yourself and your practices
• Network, learn, relax, and explore Galveston Island
