Open Dialogue Foundation Training Programmes running in 2024

Hello all,

This is to let you know that Open Dialogue UK will be running two foundation training programmes in 2024.

Firstly an online training that will commence in January 2024, with Kari Valtanen, Anni Haase, Petra Hohn and Nick Putman. Though we are now able to do more face-to-face trainings once again, it is clear that an online training is still a welcome option for those who are not able to travel to London. So, having had a very positive experience of running this training online on three occasions, we have decided to offer it again. The deadline for applications is 31 July 2023, and further details can be found here:

Secondly we will be running the foundation training in London, and this programme will commence in February 2024, with Anni Haase, Richard Armitage, Darren Baker and Nick Putman. This is the first time that we ourselves have organised an in person Open Dialogue training programme since the pandemic and it feels good to be doing so. The deadline for applications is 14 July 2023, and further details can be found here:

This foundation training programme is the most widely used Open Dialogue training internationally, and has now been run by Open Dialogue UK on 18 occasions, in five different countries, including five times on an in-house basis in the NHS in the UK. The programme is suitable for all professionals working in public mental health services (including peer workers) and independent practitioners. We have also been able to welcome family members onto some of our programmes. We welcome applications from people in different countries, providing applicants are able to speak English well enough to engage in the programme.

With Best Wishes,

Nick Putman
