Peer Supported Open Dialogue Conference 2017

March 22 | Regents Hall | Oxford Street | London

The annual Peer Supported Open Dialogue Conference will be an even bigger and better event than  the preceding conferences, since as a movement we are growing…

The March Conference will highlight the exciting development of the last year: the expansion of Open  Dialogue trainings. The NELFT (AFT accredited course) will now be relocated and University based with  a new tranche of trainees both NHS employed and international commencing in January 2017.

We are on the verge of receiving the grant to run the largest Open Dialogue Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) in the world within the NHS. The POD teams have been trained and are being established in Kent (KMPT) and the North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT) to provide the basis for the research.

The POD Conference will be run as a series of dialogues between clinicians and service users with the focus being on the core principles of Open Dialogue to help gain a clearer understanding of the tenets of the model. In the afternoon we have a special guest Professor Doug Zeidonis from the University of Massachusetts Medical School who has led work on the fidelity criteria for Open Dialogue, with Mary Olsen and Jaakko Seikkula.

The Conference has received considerable interest from commissioners, carers, service users and NHS clinicians so book your tickets fast or you may find we are booked  out!
