Dialogue Facilitator Training
Deepen the dialogical attitude and facilitate dialogue circles
The training to become a dialogue group facilitator offers participants the opportunity to deal intensively with the topic of 'dialogue' over a longer period of time.
It provides a framework for collecting your own dialogue experiences and for experimenting with different styles of accompaniment and intervention.
The training offers a space for intensive exchange about dialogue circle accompaniment and its various application possibilities, for developing one's own dialogical attitude and getting to know one's own strengths and weaknesses, which have an impact on the accompaniment of dialogue processes.
In addition, the training offers impulses and ideas for the implementation and application of dialogic principles and forms of work. It provides a professional basis for accompanying dialogue circles, both in work contexts and in the private sector.
People build too much walls and too few bridges.
The training program comprises 15 days, divided into five blocks of 3 days each. If you have previous knowledge and experience, you can start in the 2nd module (12 days of training). Each block includes dialogue time, mindfulness training, and facility training.
Modules 2, 3 and 4 can be completed in any order. A more flexible entry into one of these modules is possible at any time. Module 5 is the final module and requires participation in modules 2-4.
includes the practical participation in rounds of dialogue, the practice of your own dialogue skills and the reflection of personal experiences during the dialogue.
includes a practice-oriented self-experience, within which we examine and get to know our own mental models and assumptions (the limits of our own thinking) with the help of different methods. This mindfulness is necessary in order not to act too quickly as a facilitator out of one's own pain, one's own defense or one's own ideals or intervene in the process of the dialogue. In this way we expand the inner space for diversity and for different, sometimes 'difficult' modes of reaction.
includes the practical accompaniment of dialogue circles, leading generative and thematic dialogues, experimenting with different approaches, forms of work and interventions, reflecting on topics that are important for the accompaniment, and practicing the most important skills of a facilitator:
- The room preparation ('room' in the broadest sense)
- a clear and sustaining presence
- giving feedback
- the clear handling of the dual role of participant / companion
