Welcome!

We are committed to bringing forth an extensive scientific program and many stimulating practical workshops. Practice, science, and philosophy unfold during the days of the congress. The story of OPEN DIALOGUE is a long and exciting story of specific ideas that have spread and developed in many places in the world, in different settings, cultures, and contexts for the past four decades. We all have similar aims and values, yet we have different backgrounds and ways of implementing our ideas. This congress is the right place and time to share our practices, feelings, and thoughts and meet and make new friends.
