What About Event

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:

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.
