Making Sense Of Voices - 3 Day Workshop

£195.00

Description

3 DAY WORKSHOP
Making sense of voices: Utilising a biographical and social orientated approach to empower and enable mental health recovery

24th -26nd April 2017
9.30am - 4pm
Science Complex, Dale Building, Room 007

Facilitated and Presented by Peter Bullimore
Trainer and Educator, Voice Hearer and Chair of Sheffield Hearing Voices Network and the
co-founder of Paranoia Network


The traditional approach to working with voice hearers focuses upon inabilities and deficits, rather than individuals’ inherent ability to understand and cope with their voices and other experiences. This course is grounded on acceptance of lived experiences of voice hearing. Participants will be taught to employ the Maastricht Interview for voices, an assessment tool developed by Dr Sandra Escher and Professor Marius Romme, which provides a structured method for understanding and working with a voice hearer’s experience.

This is a great opportunity for a shared learning experience between voice hearers and practitioners, and discounted rates are available for users of mental health services. The price includes the cost of the full 3 day event and a Continuing Professional Development Certificate.
