Description

A LEWIS METHOD DEEP DEMOCRACY STYLE DIALOGUE

You are invited to participate in a deep democracy style dialogue to explore the following questions:

- What can we change to ensure that people who are excluded from accessing health, care and support services are able to access high quality, appropriate services that meet their needs?

- How can we create the conditions for the most vulnerable and excluded people to influence health and care services, shaping services and support that truly meets their needs?

This event is brought to Leeds via collaboration between NHS England, Leeds Gypsy and Traveller Exchange, the Lankelly Chase Foundation and Myrna Lewis, Lewis Method. We’re really excited to have this opportunity to share a method of dialogue and decision-making which has been has been prototyped and tested over 25 years in different cultures and encompassing a range of applications for macro (societal), meso (group and organisation) and micro (individual and relationship) scales. The Method is distinguished from most other approaches to working with groups and individuals for its orientation towards tension and conflict.

The Lewis Method of Deep Democracy is a practical approach for enhanced dialogue and decision making for groups and individuals. It is “democratic” because it emphasizes that every voice matters and that decisions are wisest when majority and minority voices are both valued. It is “deep” because it goes far beyond the engagement with ideas and instead surfaces emotions, intuitions, attachments and identify issues that make a conversation more honest and real.

Can Lewis Method Deep Democracy help us to improve the way our health system works in Leeds? Can we really involve excluded people in how decisions are made and how services are designed? Please join us to find out. Places are limited - book now!
