The next meeting of the Joint Special Interest Group in Psychosis (JSIGP), featuring a presentation by Fiona MacCallum on ‘Voice Dialogue: the spectrum of selves’ will be held on Wednesday October 28th 2015 from 5.30 – 7PM in the Joachim Room, College of St Hild and St Bede, Durham University (30 on this map).

Fiona is a Peer Trainer at ARCH Recovery College and a co-facilitator for the Voice Dialogue Supervision group within Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust. She is a trained Voice Dialogue Facilitator and Mindfulness Teacher and co-facilities Creative Minds Peer Support Group.

In this seminar, Fiona will explore the spectrum of selves or parts that we are all made up of, the process of voice dialogue itself, and consider the impact of empowering facilitation skills. Fiona will also share her insights into the parallels between voice dialogue facilitation and the therapeutic relationship and blocks that can invalidate or hinder the individual experience.
