Friday 22 March 2019 | 9.30AM-4.15PM | University of York | ARRC 014

This one day conference is being hosted by the Department of Health Sciences and the Department of Social Policy and Social Work at the University of York. The conference is supported by the International Centre for Mental Health Social Research at The University of York.

The aim of the conference is to provide opportunities to think about how we make sense of voice-hearing, reflect on therapeutic practices and provide a platform for exploring approaches that assist voice hearers to live well with their voices.

It is open to voice-hearers and their families/carers, practitioners, researchers and students from both the Department of Health Sciences and Department of Social Policy and Social Work.

There will be a particular critical focus on the following themes:

  • Understanding voice hearing and the relationships between voice-hearers and their voices.
  • The extent to which voice-hearers have agency with their voices.
  • The use of creative practices to express emotions related to voice-hearing.
  • Effective collaboration between voice-hearers, practitioners and researchers.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Angela Woods, Dr Ben Alderson-Day and Dr Peter Moseley (Hearing the Voice, University of Durham)
  • Professor Brendan Stone (University of Sheffield)
  • Rob Allison (University of York)
  • Ruth Lafferty (MA student, Leeds Art University)
