Collaborative and Dialogical Practices emerge from reflections on the Family Therapy practice. In 1978, Dr. Harlene Anderson and Dr. Harold Goolishian founded the Galveston Institute, the organization in which the collaborative stance in therapy arises.

This position is based on knowledge derived as a linguistic construction in the context of a communal process, and in language as the vehicle through which we construct, describe, and give our environment meaning. It could be said that it is a way for us to place ourselves to be, act and respond “with” the other person, who is invited to get involved in a shared activity, a mutual investigation and joint action.

Based on Social Constructionism, Postmodernism and Hermeneutics, the Collaborative and Dialogical Practices provide an option for the creation of possibilities, and the construction of meanings. Therapy, psychosocial practice, research, teaching,... are approached as a process and a joint project in an equitable conversation among participants.

From Umans en Red (Spain) and the Kanankil Institute (Mexico), we are pleased to offer this workshop, in the context of the International Certificate in Collaborative Practices, endorsed by the Taos Institue and the Houston Galveston Institute. The participants will explore from the theory as well as from the practice this viewpoint, in defining, from the start, a collaborative learning community.

Presented to:
Professionals and advanced students who are interested in human and social sciences (psychology, social work and social education, conflict management, teaching, research...)
