Promote new ideas and innovative practices in the field of
Counseling and Psychotherapy through training and other activities.
The Brief Systemic Dialogical Therapy model is the result of a longstanding process of personal study, research and clinical interventions with individuals, couples, families and larger groups. It is a living and continually evolving approach which combines the most recent ideas in the field of psychotherapy in a creative and original way. The foundational philosophy of the model is based on ideas influenced by social constructionism and on the principle of the transformative power of language and dialogic conversation.
The BSDT – Brief Systemic Dialogical Therapy model is an integrative approach to therapy which is being promoted through the training courses organized by the BSDT Institute.
The model integrates ideas within the field of Systemic, Brief Solution oriented and Collaborative theories and practices.
This approach helps to look at people’s problems from a different vantage point and effectively resolve them, away from quick-fix and formulaic techniques. It offers an exciting learning experience that inspires and motivates because it relies on the interests, strengths, experiences and abilities of its students.
It is supported by international institutes and experts who have marked the development of new ideas, concepts and practices in psychotherapy through their work and writings
"One of the most fruitful experiences of my Life. Everything I have learned helped me improve myself and my relationship with others. The thoughts that came afterwards were the starting point of my own movement forward."
"This, very positive, training experience has been a life – changer in every sense … Looking forward to the next two years!"
"I was looking for Continuing Professional Development training that would enrich the dialogical aspect of my professional work as a Music Therapist. Having experienced the BSDT Institute courses and Personal Development groups since October 2012, my work has been fundamentally changed positively, and also my personal life. I’m really looking forward to the next course, autumn 2014! New challenges, new discoveries, new learnings… Life is a work in progress."
"Through my experience in the BSDT program, I’ve had the opportunity to unfold personal skills and possibilities that I didn’t know existed! Now, I am more confident and comfortable in working with my clients and most importantly, I am able to deal with everyday personal and professional situations in a more positive manner. It has been a great journey!"
"Studying and practicing counseling, pursuing personal development and self-awareness opportunities, has been my journey for decades. Still, discovering the Dialogical approach of the BSDT model, participating in its courses and experiential learning, has expanded my horizons, personally and professionally, beyond what I could have anticipated. It is an innovative model and Dina is a great teacher with broad experience and wisdom, which she shares gracefully; I am grateful to continue to be her student."
