A challenging Training Opportunity from Dina Mousteri

Dear friend,


This is a unique opportunity to register for the two year training program offered by the
Cyprus Brief Systemic Dialogical Therapy Institute, scheduled to begin September 2018.

You can determine whether the Brief Systemic Dialogue Therapy training is suitable for you by answering “YES“ to the following questions

  • Do you believe knowledge to be an essential condition for personal growth instead of just a means for earning money?
  • Do you love to discover truths through your own experiences and not simply copy theories and techniques created by others?
  • Do you want to be able to reach the essence of people’s specific problems while simultaneously helping solve them quickly and efficiently?

  • Are you interested to learn how to use the method of Dialogue in depth?
  • Would you like to be inspired and empowered to become the person and professional you would like to be?
  • Do you believe that, who we are and how we act, affects not only ourselves and those close to us, but also the whole world, and we can make a difference with our personal choices?

  • Are you ready to commit yourself to a learning process which is based on solid scientific foundations and is combined with a philosophy that serves above all the ethical aspects of personal growth and relationships?
  • Are you ready to commit yourself to a learning process which helps you to apply therapeutic collaborative dialogue with people of all ages, individuals, couples and families, including those with serious problems?

What is the two year Training in Brief Systemic Dialogical Therapy?

The Brief Systemic Dialogical Therapy model is the result of a longstanding process of personal study, research and clinical interventions with individuals, couples, families and larger groups. It is a living and continually evolving approach which combines the most recent ideas in the field of psychotherapy in a creative and original way. It is supported by international institutes and experts who have marked the development of new ideas, concepts and practices in psychotherapy through their work and writings.

The two-year BSDT course combines theory with practical training through collaborative learning and group reflective dialogue. This approach helps to look at people’s problems from a different vantage point and effectively resolve them, away from quick-fix and formulaic techniques. It offers an exciting learning experience that inspires and motivates because it relies on the interests, strengths, experiences and abilities of its students.
