HGI and Taos Institute launch the International Certificate in Collaborative Practices
posted April 2011
The Certificate Program provides practitioners across disciplines—therapy, organization development, education and research—an intensive, in-depth study of collaborative practices based in postmodern-social construction philosophy. The Program includes the study of the theoretical and philosophical assumptions and their application to practice in a variety of contexts and cultures.
The program offers a special value as a collaborative learning community in action: a learning environment and process that is harmonious with the theoretical and philosophical assumptions on which collaborative practice is based. Collaborative learning invites and insures that the knowledge and experience of the participants is valued, accessed and enhanced and the faculty is fully supportive and accessible.
