This book has been written by Jaakko Seikkula and Tom Erik Arnkil. The publishers say:
“This book describes and analyses two dialogic network practices: ‘Open Dialogues’ – developed for use in psychiatric crisis situations – and ‘Anticipation Dialogues’ – used in less acute situations such as multi-agency muddles where the helper systems are stuck. The book is both theoretical and detailed enough for practitioners who wish to apply the approaches to their work. It is meant for professionals in the fields of psycho-social work – including therapists to day care personnel, social workers to school teachers, – researchers, and academics. As the book touches upon dialogues with and within private networks, the book reaches out to clients, too.”
