I am excited to make a leap from seeing a whole lot of different approaches as all being part of a lager enterprise: Process Design. Each design will have different values on the same list of variables. Each design has its place and purpose. The history of process design would be a bit like the history of architecture.
Great process designers & designs:
Freud – couch
Moreno – psychodrama stage
Perls – hot seat
Satir – family therapy
Hendrix – couple dialogue. communalogue
Jim Rough – Dynamic Facilitation
Online there are various processes with their own design:
web – (a bit like drawings on a wall – perhaps that is the metaphor FaceBook uses?)
Blogs – and Blogs with comments.
The science and art of process design – a book i’d like to write!
I have some drafts for this book, but this post renames it from “Varieties of Dialogue”, to “process Design”.
Here is a link to a post by Jim Rough I want to put somewhere, it mat be behind a password. His distinctions made me think of this.
