Saturday, 15 March 2014 from 10:30 to 16:30
Voice Collective aims to challenge the stigma surrounding voice-hearing in young people, and support people to find ways of making sense of their experiences. This FREE one-day workshop, facilitated by Rachel Waddingham from the London Voice Collective project, and Elisabeth Svanholmer & Adam Jhugroo (Voice Collective Bradford group facilitators) is aimed at anyone interested in supporting young people who struggle with distressing voices or visions. This may include parents, voice-hearers, peer support workers, CAMHS practitioners, EIP workers, nurses, psychologists, support workers, therapists, counsellors, psychiatrists, SENCOs, and social workers.
The workshop offers the opportunity to:
- Gain a deeper understanding about the experience of hearing voices and its impact on young people.
- Consider different approaches to understanding voices & visions.
- Explore links between voices, emotions and difficult life experiences.
- Think about ways to challenge stigma and talk, safely, with young people about their voices.
- Enhance your toolkit of strategies to support young people distressed by voices and visions.
- Hear positive examples of recovery.
