Recovery, the Individual and Community - presentation
Recovery, the Individual and Community - article
As individuals we continually choose among different ways and possibilities for the course of our lives. However, it is impossible to go on in our lives without others. Virtually everything we do does only make sense in context of relationships in which we live. Then with respect to our future it may be preferable not to concern that much to building our own individualities. Rather we may focus on a community that we build together. As John Shotter says:
Horizons 2016 will represent an open space for sharing activities, projects, ideas and experiences connected to community. Be it communities local or virtual, open or close, lay or professional, oppressed or else, we will be discovering processes that help them maintain diversity and allow for feelings of mutuality and cohesion.
Organizers aim to combine professional knowledge and the lived experience.
Symposium is organized by the Narativ Association in collaboration with:
International Certificate in Collaborative-Dialogic Practices
Platform for social housing
Platform for complex approach to drug abuse and addictions
Faculty of Social Studies, Ostrava University
