Learn more – who we are

“… As soon as the baby breathes, he is right away an actor for dialogue. So there is nothing to learn, but it is so elementary that it becomes obvious … ”(Jaakko Seikkula)
The “Open Dialogue” method originates from a passion to find different ways of understanding mental health difficulties and in particular psychotic experiences. Open Dialogue is a network approach to mental health difficulties. It was developed in Tornio, Western Lapland, Finland by Jaakko Seikkula and colleagues in the early 1980’s.
“The dialogical, as Arnkil and Seikkula (2013) say,  is not a method or a set of techniques but it is an attitude, a way of seeing, which is based on recognizing and respecting the otherness of the other, and ongoing to meet them.”
