Description

What is Voices Vic?
Voices Vic is an award-winning and research supported specialist program improving the wellbeing and recovery of people who hear voices. Led by peers with lived experience, Voices Vic provides dynamic recovery groups, one-on-one support and facilitate trainings across Australia for organisations and individuals who work with voice hearers.

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
2 Hour Introduction Workshop will include:
• A brief introduction to the Hearing Voices Approach
• Practical skills & tools on how mental health professionals can utilise the approach
• An understanding of some coping skills voice hearers may implement to reduce stress
• A personal share of lived experience
• Q & A opportunity
