Fostering Dialogical Learning Experiences in Consulting.
Orr, C. Jack
On the basis of theoretical reflection and personal experience, this paper offers five guidelines for fostering dialogical learning experiences in consulting in the field of communication. After a discussion of the author's dialogical learning experiences in overcoming communication problems with his father, the paper provides these guidelines: (1) call forth assumptions to make room for otherness; (2) strengthen the "I" for "Thou and I"; (3) facilitate give and take, but do not mystify dialogue; (4) help groups pause and reflect on the reality that they are creating for themselves, so that they can negotiate new realities through give and take; and (5) do not mystify yourself.
