A Journey into the Hearing Voices Approach - Recording

A Journey into the Hearing Voices Approach - Recording
The Hearing Voices Approach is the peer-led recovery model for people who hear voices, see and sense things around them that others do not. This presentation aims to provide an insight into the approach that assists people to the alleviate distress associated with voices and work towards a meaningful life. Many people hear voices and find them helpful, sacred, or just a normal part of life. Some people find voices confusing or frightening and seek help to cope. These people are commonly diagnosed with schizophrenia or another mental illness often with associated trauma.

This presentation is suitable for voice-hearers, supporters of voice hearers and mental health professionals to help understand new ways of working with voices.
