ABOUT HEARING VOICES GROUPS

Peer support groups are an established and valuable resource for people who experience voices, visions and other unusual sensory perceptions or alternative realities. Groups provide a safe space to share individual viewpoints, support each other, and find ways of making sense of experiences.

The majority of groups take place in the community, but others can be found embedded for example in hospitals, in prisons & in Early Intervention teams. When lockdown came in March 2020 there were upwards of 30 Hearing Voices or Paranoia & Beliefs Groups across the capital, and across the nation roughly 150. Hearing Voices Networks are flourishing in >26 countries.

MIGRATING THE GROUPS ONLINE

We will look at the benefits and challenges of holding peer support groups online, and provide space to explore different ways of facilitating online. This course will help you get a sense of how setting up and facilitating an online group might work. It can also be a practical starting point for creating an online version of what was previously a face-to-face group.

The content will also include:

  • Exploring diverse understandings of voices, visions, beliefs & ‘psychosis’
  • Coping strategies and pathways to recovery
  • Rethinking power & empowerment
  • Practical group facilitation skills and problem solving
  • Hearing Voices Network ethos
