Há um grupo em Portugal (para além do Arturo, que tem tentado criar uma rede nacional como agora acabei de ver) que tem usado a metodologia do WC em Portugal há anos, ligado à Associação Portuguesa de Estudos e Intervenção em Psicologia Positiva. Temos pagina no Facebook e quem gere é a Catarina Rivero (Terapeuta Familiar, Formadora e facil de encontrar na net), que foi das primeiras portuguesas, tanto quanto saibemos, a fazer formação nesta área (com a Juanita Brown). Estamos unidos também a um grupo (Transformadofes Sociais), com base em Lisboa na João Sem Medo (também no Facebook).Só agora recebi estes comentários, apesar de alguns meses terem passado, razão porque só agora estou a responder. Deixo entretanto saudações positivas. Helena Águeda Marujo (Docente do Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Politicas da Universidade de Lisboa)
I'm so sorry that you were not welcomed when you first came to the community - this function is all volunteer, so sometimes that happens, but I hope you know it does not mean your presence and participation are any less valued or appreciated.
There is a Cafe em Portugal group that you might like to join - it's small, but run by the wonderful Arturo Silva, who may be a good resource and ally for you. I did a "Advanced Search" (under the Find People tab) for people living in Portugal and found 14, so there may be others there that you could reach out to as well.
There is more material about World Cafe and this community in the Resources and Orientation tabs of this site. I'm happy to answer any questions you have - please let me know how I can be of help.
Criei um grupo para procurar juntar as pessoas de Portugal que estão neste NING, para nos conhecermos e vermos se conseguimos dinamizar o World Cafe em Portugal - onde as tertúlias nos Cafés tiveram uma grande importância histórica.
