”Since early 1980 s I have participated in developing dialogical, more human and family centred care for most severe mental health problems, as psychosis.
I have actively studied the new system of care since the end of 1980s, having the focus both on the effectiveness of the Open Dialogues and on making sense of the dialogical processes. For this I have with my team developed a specific method for investigating multi actor dialogues.
Lately I have been in charge of a research project for Relational Mind, in which we were looking at the embodiment
of dialogues. It is, how do we participate in dialogue with our bodies. I am a family therapy supervisor and
have conducted about half of a dozen program for Psychotherapists and about a half of a dozen programs for Trainers in dialogical family therapy, including Open Dialogues. Lately these programs happen in English.
I am also an active author, writing 12 books, out of which two have been translated in 15 languages. In addition, I have authored or co-authored about 180 scientific paper.”
