Jaakko Seikkula Speaks on Finnish Open Dialogue, Social Networks, and Recovery from Psychosis
by dmackler58
Here I interview Jaakko Seikkula, PhD, a professor of psychotherapy at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland who is best known for his work with Finnish Open Dialogue. He speaks about the value of engaging social networks in crisis situations, the development of the Finnish Open Dialogue approach, the idea that there is meaning behind psychosis, and some unexpected benefits in Western Lapland of including family members in therapy with people experiencing psychosis.For more on Open Dialogue, see:
