Norbert Apteri Töötuba “The Delayed Dialogue Technique”

Seminar September 9th – 10th, 2017, in Tallinn, Estonia

organized by Helsinki Psychodrama Institute, Tallinn Psychodrama Institute and
Tartu Psychodrama Institute


Norbert Apter:



Addressing the unspoken is often an important step towards re-dynamizing a team.

Even more: The higher the level of tension in the team, the more the unspoken ends up needing to come out in the open and to be taken into account in a possible conflict resolution. But speaking out the unspoken opens the space to such sensitive –  at times tricky – interactions in a team! The most delicate attention must be given to such moments!

Norbert Apter has run in the last 25 years a great number of TeamCaring, TeamBuilding, and Conflict Resolutions / Mediations with teams. Since the teams have diverse levels of tension (between 0 and 10), he created and is successfully using, a technique which can provide a secure opportunity for speaking the unspoken in a team or group …  be it « I love working with you…» or « I have a difficulty with you… » etc.: The Delayed Dialogue technique.

Norbert Apter will share the ins and outs of this technique, as well as how it brings about a relational depth in a team, while strictly remaining in the professional realm.

This seminar is perfect for:

  • HR-specialists, consultants, coaches, supervisors, trainers and managers, who work in organisations and who want to learn new methodology for team development and supporting more open communication in organisations,
  • Other professionals interested in action methods, and
  • Students of action methods and psychodrama, and psychodramatists and psychodramatrainers.

The seminar is action based and will combine theory and action / demonstration.
