Worshop: Abstract

'Digital natives and the Other'. About networks, organizations and dialogue

The workshop is about the transition of the culture we are in now with the fast development of the digital age and leaving behind us the society based on the hierachical aspects of the 19-20th century (church, government...).

This results in a speedy change in culture, society and organizations with at the same time a dramatic change in professional and private relationships and life. The digital age means often an immediately answer and an approach into action. Flexibility, multitasking, are the new attitudes in life everywhere.

But, what about listening to the Other, the experiencing of looking at art and listening to music, understanding each other, to read a book, The digital information often influences our communication, behavior and dialogues with the Other in a direct and an invisible way. Globalization, information networks, and a highly changing environment are the challenging ingredients of the coming future.

How should we dialogue as a person in a digital environment? Are we related or do we have a relationship in the network? Dialogue and conflicts in networks?

What does this means to our dialogical psychotherapeutic practices in digital age? What do we think about therapy online? What about hyperindividuality?  What are the advantages of the digital age on the relational development of a personal life? To be a digital native or not?
