“OPEN DIALOGUE” by Daniel Mackler
In the Far North of Finland, a stones throw from the Arctic Circle, a group of innovative family therapists converted the area’s traditional mental health system, which once boasted poor outcomes for schizophrenia, into one that now gets the best statistical results in the world for first break psychosis. They call their approach Open Dialogue.
Their principles, though radical in this day and age of multi-drug cocktails and involuntary hospitilization, are surprisingly simple. Daniel Mackler travels to Finland to see for himself and interviews the therapists involved.
Please bring a plate along, for a shared afternoon tea and wonderful discussion afterwards.
