Event description
Developing skills to individually support voice hearers, or those with unusual beliefs in prisons, forensic units and IRCs...

About this Event

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. 

With life not returning to pre-Covid times for the forseeable future, there's a need for skilled one-to-one work around such experiences.

This FREE 2 day training course, is open to people nationwide working in prisons, forensic units and immigration removal centres, or those who work primarily with ex-detainees.  

ABOUT THE COURSE

For those who are new to the Hearing Voices ethos, who have never been on one of our Hearing Voices courses OR who are aware of the ethos but would like a refresher, Day 1, 30th November covers:

  • Diverse experiences and understandings of voices, visions, alternative realities and 'psychosis' in secure forensic settings
  • Coping strategies and pathways to recovery
  • Power and empowerment within secure settings

For those who cofacilitate Hearing Voices groups and would like to develop skills working in a one-to-one capacity with voice hearers AND/OR who have attended Day 1 of this course, Day 2, 2nd December covers:

  • Reflections on the differences between one-to-one support and a Hearing Voices Group
  • Maintaining the Hearing Voices ethos when there's only 2 of you. Is it different to therapy?
  • How do we keep things feeling safe and apply a 'trauma-informed' approach?
  • Problem solving common difficulties that arise
  • Reflecting on our own positioning within this one-to-one relationship

Grounded in lived experience, and our work supporting people in different secure settings, we use powerpoint slides, practical activities such as role play, and reflective discussions to cater to a variety of learning styles in an online format.

‘Having attended many courses in my work since qualifying in 2002 I would like to say it was one of the best courses I have attended and a great opportunity for exploration and learning.’ - Trainee from 3-day facilitation training

ELIGIBILITY

The course is open only to those working in prisons, IRCs, forensic units or primarily with ex-detainees. 

Places on this FREE course fill up fast, please register quickly to avoid disappointment. Please note we are only able to take up to 3 people from each institution, we take this into consideration when allocating places.
