Apply: dialogue is essential to community development. if the point of community development is to increase awareness and empower people into action, then the absolute basis for that is a open, honest, and respectful communication between people. unfortunately this type of communication is harder to achieve that just saying, i will be honest, open and respectful of the people around me. true honesty and respect requires that we know ourselves, our subconscious stereotypes, and hidden emotions, and that is harder that we might think. it is especially hard because true dialogue makes you vulnerable, and people in our society anyway don't necessarily appreciate that.
Adapt: i think dialogue (in the Freireian understanding) should be the basis of all human interactions. but if i am to apply it to any one field, i think it is especially required for people engaged in peace, and conflict resolution work. war is a trauma that dehumanizes probably more than anything else, and having people that are skilled in listening, and dialogue-ing in a Freireian is the first step toward re-humanizing people.
