Event description:

This course is the foundation to the Hearing Voices Approach. The first 2 days will give you a solid understanding of applying the approach in many practical settings, either for yourself, in your work as a mental health professional or in your family/home environment.

The final day covers Voice Profiling - a set of accessible strategies that help build greater awareness and understanding of a person’s voices. By the end of this training, you will have more tools & confidence to work with people’s voice hearing experiences.

This training is for all disciplines in clinical services including medical and nursing staff/

Hearing Voices Approach:

  • Hearing voices is a common human experience
  • Recovery is about changing the relationship with the voices and transforming the voice hearers’ experiences to acceptance
  • The experience of hearing voices is meaningful
  • We define ‘hearing voices’ as an umbrella term used to refer to auditory, visual, olfactory sensory experiences, and beliefs that others around them do not experience

This course is delivered online via Zoom.

A zoom link will be to registrants a few days before the training.
