The International Certificate Collaborative-Dialogic Practices (ICCP) is an interdisciplinary program that provides an intensive, in-depth study of postmodern-social construction-relational theory and the possibilities for personal, organizational, and social transformation that flow from this orientation. The program focuses on the theoretical and philosophical assumptions of collaborative-dialogic practices as transformational and the application within and across disciplines, contexts, and cultures. Practice examples include working with personal and social issues, in educational contexts, organizations, research, community work, healthcare, and more.
The program offers a special value in that it provides multiple opportunities for participants to experience a collaborative learning community in action: an environment and process that is harmonious with the theoretical and philosophical assumptions upon which collaborative practice is based, and in which the knowledge and experience of the participants is valued. The faculty is fully supportive and accessible, given their collaborative, philosophical approach. In addition, participants have opportunities to apply their learning in their own specific area of practice (regardless of professional affiliation) and to receive supervision.
