Dr Rajiv Singh

(Illawarra Shoalhaven Child, Adolescent and Youth Mental Health Services, Wollongong)

"Dialogic Practice and Jung's Concept of the Temenos"

(at the MacKillop Conference Centre, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham)"

Open Dialogue (OD), developed during the 1980s in Western Lapland, Finland, is both a therapeutic intervention and a way of organising services.

Embodying systemic family therapy, social constructionism and some psychodynamic principles, OD has shown some impressive results in working with people with mental health problems, including reduced rates of medication use and need for hospital treatment. The central clinical element of OD is Dialogic Practice. 
Dialogic Practice emphasises conversations that allow the therapist(s) to be “with” the person, as opposed to holding conversations “about” the person. It involves creating a dialogic space within which meaningful participation of the person and his/her network can occur.

In this talk an attempt will be made to identify commonalities in this element of dialogic practice with 
C.G. Jung's concept of the Temenos – the “inner space deep within us where soul-making takes place” – where the creativity of healing can occur.

Dr Rajiv Singh is a Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist who has trained in medicine and psychiatry in India and then in Australia. He has been working as a consultant for the last many years, having practiced in India, Australia and New Zealand. He is currently in his second year of training in Open Dialogue. His thesis for the OD course looks at resonances between Dialogic Practice, free association and meditative practice.
