A One Day Conference organised by the UK Critical Psychiatry Network (University of Nottingham, 16th April 2015)
Following successful one day conferences in 2013 and 2014, and continuing concerns about the nature, provenance and consequences of contemporary psychiatric practice, The UK Critical Psychiatry Network has organised a further opportunity for psychiatrists to consider how their practices might develop. There will also be ample opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues. The conference will be preceded by a dinner on the evening of April 15th. Overnight accommodation at the on-campus Orchards Hotel can be arranged.
- Why is interest in Open Dialogue growing so fast in the UK?
- What is the experience of Open Dialogue actually like?
- Is it relevant for you – should you be getting involved?
This is a day for anyone wanting answers to these questions, and suitable for professionals of all disciplines, those who commission services, people with personal experience of psychosis or family members, and anyone trying to support people experiencing psychosis.
Anna Arabyskj, Corinne Hendy, Mark Hopfenbeck, Marc Hudson, Val Jackson, Catherine Kinane & Russell Razzaque
As well as covering the principles of Open Dialogue, recent UK developments, and the planned UK wide research programme, speakers will talk about their personal experience of: dialogical practice as client, family member and practitioner; participating in Open Dialogue in Norway; participating in UK training in Open Dialogue, with perspectives from a peer support worker and a psychiatrist; obtaining funding for Open Dialogue developments in the current climate of austerity.
There will be opportunity for first hand experience of dialogical practice.
Please note: participant numbers will be limited to make this a worthwhile experience.
