Do you need to enhance your skills to facilitate dialogue sessions professionally or in your community?
The Nansen Dialogue Facilitation training will help you to become familiar with the principles of dialogue facilitation, and how to plan and follow up a dialogue process. This advanced training is a continuation of the Nansen Basic Dialogue Training. Even without the basic training, if you have previous experience from dialogue work you are welcome to apply.
Participants will practice dialogue facilitation in settings where the aim is to prevent or transform conflicts such as challenging issues in the community, conflicts within the family, at work, in organisations and schools. Dialogue facilitation ensures inclusive processes and provides the safe space needed to deal with conflicts and sensitive issues.
-Elements of dialogue
-What makes facilitation different from supervision, mentoring or mediation?
-Reflecting on the facilitation practice
-Designing a dialogue process
All topics will be dealt with in an interactive process, through role plays, group conversations, reflection rounds and different types of exercises. This training will provide you with the tools and skills needed to become a good facilitator.
