This workshop looks at the practice of working with and talking to voices, using the techniques developed in self help hearing voices groups by pioneers like Ron Coleman and then by Prof Marius Romme, Rufus May, Eleanor Longden and Dr Dirk Corstens who used the Stones theory of voice dialoguing as an explanation and theory behind the techniques.
Why Speak With Voices?
- This method does not focus on voices as a symptom of ‘illness’- nor does it concentrate on discovering what is “wrong” with the person.
- It offers a neutral but strong attitude to working with voices – acceptance is the core of the technique.
- It helps develop increased awareness, objectivity and a more productive relationship between voices and voice-hearer.
By definition, voice-hearing is very lonely experience. Allowing others to “hear” the voices is empowering, liberating and a source of considerable support. In turn, it also affords professionals, friends and family some valuable insight into the reality of a person’s voice- hearing experience
1) Learn voice dialogue techniques, 2) Practice voice dialogue with volunteers
