Transforming Solution-Focused Dialogues

Dialogic Orientation Quadrants at Work

Despite it’s prestigious title, the Dialogic Orientation Quadrant is a simple, easy to use tool  for research or learning purposes to analyse our coaching /therapeutic conversations bit by bit or sentence by sentence. 

Recording, transcripting and thoroughly analyzing our own – real or alternative – dialogues we become observers of ourselves and experts in observation at the same time. We might understand how things we usually refer to as “gut feeling”, “magic” or “the art of therapy / coaching” work in a dialogue setting. We might observe what do we actually do to create and maintain these magical moments and process of co-creation – in every second of the conversation.

In this highly interactive workshop

we will take a deeper look at how dialogue works so that you can use the following resources immediately in your personal life and professional practice:

  • Establishing an individual baseline for learning Solution Focused Dialogue
  • Using video data for mentoring (including peer-mentoring) and self-study
  • Understanding various tools of co-construction and the functions of the practitioner’s moment-by-moment contribution
  • Applying the Dialogic Orientation Quadrant (DOQ) to map the content, movements, revisions, and functions
  • Recording video sessions optimized for self-review and research

The workshop will be useful for you, if you…

  • As a (highly) experienced therapist / coach want to gain new perspectives and be more conscious about how you create value for your clients
  • As a (near) beginner therapist / coach wish to see a model you might easily use even in difficult (coaching)situations 
  • Can’t wait to be your own observer or watch what your clients see and hear when you are working
  • Are interested in gaining practical knowledge with the process of microanalysis
  • As a trainer of therapist / coaches you might want to refresh yourself and your methodological toolkit to help your students more effectively

Notes: This session requires you to bring a recording device (e.g. devices with a built-in camera and mic such as your smartphones or tablets, or a video camera) and a headset for you to use when transcribing.
