"Hearing Voices that are Distressing"



The Workshop

It involves an introductory videotaped lecture on the phenomenon of hearing voices that are distressing, a simulated voice-hearing experience, and a facilitated discussion period following the simulation.

This workshop is not intended for people who hear voices.  Developed by Dr. Patricia Deegan.
