Work and Organization through Intercultural Dialogue
This article presents 25 years of experience with the theory and practice conducted through the intercultural relationships between an indigenous rural Mexican community and a team of urban professionals who became an insider partner in regional human and community development. The first section offers the synchronic and diachronic aspects of the epistemological perspective that has been evolving over the years; the theoretical basis that includes three challenges and six levels; and the methodology of presence, interdisciplinarity and agency. The second section is the narrative of the experience. It was rewarding and enriching to discover at international psychology congresses the convergence of our approach with that currently used by the social relational constructionist group led by Dian Marie Hosking.
Keywords: Theory and Practice, Intercultural Dialogue, Human and Community development process.
