The newest dialogical ideas and practices in collaboration with families and social networks
According to dialogical conceptions of man, a human being is born into dialogical relationships. These relations become a part of our selfhood. The human wellbeing and mental health are always connected to the relationships in which we are living. But are we able to utilize the resources emerging in social networks and collaboration at our clinical work?
Professionals working in the fields of psychotherapy, social work and education.
