Summer School On Dialogical Practices

With Jaakko Seikkula and Justine van Lawick

In 2016, the series of the “Summer School on Dialogical Practices” moves from Leuven, Belgium, to Brno, Czech Republic

Ex- students of the Leuven summer school together with the initiators of the original Summer School are going to set up a new context where psychotherapists and other professionals are going to take an opportunity for expanding their capabilities by reflecting on and developing dialogical skills.

You are invited to book in your agenda the time between the 15- 19.08.2016, and look forward to the next newsletter with lots of details which will, we hope, answer the questions born in your inner dialogue with this first announcement.

For more information regarding the summerschool, you can contact Elena Ceuca via:
