Dear friends and colleagues,
queridos amigos y colegas,
is coming soon...
The ISI has been a yearly gathering where we meet with friends and colleagues in order to connect, collaborate and construct.

El ISI es una reunión anual en la que nos encontramos con amigos y colegas para conectar, colaborar y construir.
Harlene, Ñeca & Sylvia
Our ISI friends and colleagues wonder:
“When is the next ISI?”
“Will there ever be another one?”
As we all know, The COVID 19 pandemic remains a serious health threat worldwide.
It has forced us to live with uncertainty and be creatively patient.
We optimistically thought that we could convene ISI 2022 in person.
We planned it to be in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The hotel has been patient and we have reserved it for the future—whenever the future may be.
We and many others miss our ISI community-our long walks and leisure conversations and the challenging clinical work, theoretical discussions, thinking together over good food, shopping, visiting interesting towns and places… and so much more.
To help us remain connected, energized, and committed to our shared community and values we invite you to a very brief ISI Zoom gathering.
Please join us,
Harlene, Neca, and Sylvia
Nuestros amigos y colegas de ISI se preguntan:
“¿Cuándo es el próximo ISI?”
“¿Habrá alguna vez otro?”
Como todos sabemos, la pandemia del COVID 19 sigue siendo una grave amenaza para la salud de todo el mundo.
Nos ha obligado a vivir con incertidumbre y ser creativamente pacientes.
Pensamos con optimismo que podríamos convocar ISI 2022 en persona. Planeamos que fuera en San Miguel de Allende, México. El hotel ha sido paciente y lo hemos reservado para el futuro, sea cual sea el futuro.
Nosotros y muchos otros extrañamos nuestra comunidad ISI: nuestras largas caminatas y conversaciones de ocio y el desafiante trabajo clínico, discusiones teóricas, pensar juntos sobre buena comida, ir de compras, visitar ciudades y lugares interesantes… y mucho más.
Para ayudarnos a permanecer conectados, energizados y comprometidos con nuestra comunidad y valores compartidos, lo invitamos a una breve reunión ISI Zoom.
Por favor acompáñanos,
Harlene, Neca, y Sylvia
Harlene Anderson , Sylvia London and Irma (Ñeca) Rodríguez invite you to join them for unique learning, bilingual-multicultural opportunity.
Enjoy their warm hospitality and immerse yourself in exploring postmodern/social construction collaborative philosophy and practices with people from around the world. Learn about the heart and spirit of collaborative practices—a philosophical stance—and experience it in action.
Beginning in the 70’s Harry Goolishian and Harlene Anderson invited a small group of professionals to Galveston for a week to think and work together around emerging collaborative-dialogic ideas and practices.
These gatherings evolved into the International Summer Institute: a space for practitioners, researchers, scholars, and students to learn and share ideas and practices. Over the last twenty years the ISI convened in Mexico—as a bilingual event hosted by Harlene Anderson and Grupo Campos Eliseos colleagues—and grew in size and relevance within the international collaborative-dialogic community.
The International Summer Institute (ISI) is a significant contribution to these efforts. Importantly, it provides a space for practitioners to learn, share their work with others and further develop the growing international community of collaborative – dialogue practitioners.
The Institute is designed to meet the needs of participants with experience in collaborative practice and those new to it. The residential-symposium format allows for full immersion in collaborative-dialogic practices and its translation to a variety of contexts, cultures, and ‘client’ populations.
Format: bilingual didactic presentations, live consultations, experiential exercises, dialogue spaces, conversational clusters and socials. Participants love the time for “pop-up” activities the residential-symposium provides.
Dialogue Spaces (DS) are designed to provide opportunities for participants to meet in small groups with a facilitator around topics of interest.
DS are organized during scheduled times and leisure time as well. Topics include research, clinical issues (i.e., children, couples, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc.), education and training, working in organizations and communities, coaching and more.
Benefit to attending the ISI:
- Study with Harlene and international colleagues.|
- Expand your creativity and competency in postmodern / social construction collaborative-dialogue practice.
- Revitalize yourself and your practices.
- Network and learn with other collaborative-dialogue practitioners from around the world.
Meet, learn, create, relax and network with colleagues from around the world who share your interest in Collaborataive Dialogical Practices.
