As an educational charity the Academy provides a range of short, accredited courses to promote the understanding and practice of Professional Dialogue, and longer developmental programmes for those who want to become accredited practitioners.  Courses are currently provided online.

INTRODUCTORY COURSES

A Taste of Dialogue

an experiential enquiry into how we talk and think together and the unique value of Dialogue.

Discover the distinctive nature of Dialogue among seven different Modes that people use to talk and think together.  Experience the characteristics of each Mode, how they engage people, what each can achieve, and how they enhance or detract from people’s ability to work and live well with others.  Check your own skill, comfort, and discomfort with each Mode.

Why Dialogue?

an in-depth exploration of the state of our organisations and communities and the need for Dialogue.

Consider the challenges you see around you, how things come to be that way and what can be done.  Draw on the original proposals by David Bohm and others about the generic state of fragmentation in consciousness to understand what is happening and explore the emergence of Professional Dialogue as a means to resolve the problems, at the root.
