We’re excited to draw your attention to ‘Making Sense of Voices’, an upcoming one-day conference hosted by the Department of Health Sciences and the Department of Social Policy and Social Work at the University of York. Including talks from our very own Angela Woods, Ben Alderson-Day and Peter Moseley, the event will 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.
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.
- Dr Angela Woods, Dr Ben Alderson-Day and Dr Peter Moseley (University of Durham)
- Professor Brendan Stone (University of Sheffield)
- Rob Allison (University of York)
- Ruth Lafferty (MA student, Leeds Art University)
- Dr Roz Austin (University of York)
- Dr Joachim Schnackenberg
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. Places are free, but early booking is advised. To reserve your place, click here.
The conference is supported by the International Centre for Mental Health Social Research at The University of York.
