Event description

Description

3 DAY COURSE - 10.00am - 4.30pm Wednesday 18th, Wednesday 25th and Monday 30th October


According to the MoJ (2013), 25% of women and 15% of men in prison report symptoms indicative of 'psychosis' (including distress around hearing voices, seeing things or beliefs). In forensic services, this percentage is likely to be much higher.

Hearing Voices Groups are an established way of offering support to people who hear voices or see visions in the community. In 2010, Mind in Camden launched a network of groups in prisons and secure units in London. We now have groups in immigration removal centres (IRCs). This network, the first of its kind, continues to grow throughout Greater London, the Home Counties and in other parts of the UK.

ABOUT THE COURSE
This 3 day training course is open to people across the country who would like to develop a Hearing Voices Group in a secure setting for men or all genders. Topics covered include:
  • Exploring diverse experiences & understandings of voices, visions & 'psychosis' in secure forensic settings
  • Coping strategies and pathways to recovery
  • Exploring power & empowerment within secure settings
  • Practical group facilitation skills, including dealing with difficult situations/problem solving

FEES
The course is free for those committed to facilitating a Hearing Voices Group within a prison, IRC, medium or high secure unit.
