Description

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 training aims to provide tools to assist people to alleviate distress associated with voices and work towards a meaningful life.
This training will give you a solid understanding of the Hearing Voices Approach and the confidence to apply it in many practical settings.
These skills are transferrable either for yourself, in your work as a mental health professional or in your family/home environment.

The tools and strategies used in this training include:
• Identifying ‘distinct’ voices
• Linking the voices to the individual’s life history
• Searching for patterns and meaning of the voices
• Seeking to understand the voice’s message or intent, and
• Breaking down the experience into manageable parts

Note: The Hearing Voices Approach and Training have been developed around the world by people with Lived Experience.

NOTE: PARTICIPANTS NEED TO ATTEND AND REGISTER FOR BOTH SESSIONS.
