I was able to spend a little time with Jaakko to record this 12 minute interview, a the Dialogical Practices Conference in Leuven, Belgium, in March 2013:
Open Dialogue as a “Need Adapted” Approach to Psychiatric Intervention
More detail about this conference, including video and on-line presentations is available at http://www.opendialogicalpractices.eu/events/
The publishers of “The Reflecting Team in Action” edited by Steven Friedman (1995, The Guilford Press, New York) and courtesy of Google Books we have free access to the chapter on Open Dialogue
A new book has been added to the the ISPS book series (published by Routledge) late in 2012
Edited by Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher, “Psychosis as a Personal Crisis” describes an approach which is fundamentally about the person, and finding traditional medical approaches at best providing band-aid treatment for these crises, this book seems to provide a framework for this personalised response to distressing symptoms, like voices (auditory hallucinations) and beliefs (delusions).
A sample chapter, “Psychiatry at the crossroads: The limitations of contemporary psychiatry in validating subjective experiences “, by Dr Brain Martindale, is available for download here.
Dr Martindale has written extensively on psychosis – two of his freely available papers are here:
Psychodynamic contributions to early intervention in psychosis
The rehabilitation of psychanalysis and the family in psychosis: Recovering from blaming
