This book explores ways of working creatively with voices and other inner experiences to foster personal growth, healing and recovery. It includes a detailed description of a wide variety of voice experiences, an overview of theories which attempt to explain why they occur and a comprehensive set of practical strategies for dealing with unwanted or disturbing voices.
Drawing on the practices of the Hearing Voices Network, an international group of voice hearers who are challenging the notion that hearing voices is a sign of mental illness, this book shows how the phenomenon is intimately tied to broader questions of embodiment, practices of government and regulation, as well as to the production of new forms of subjectivity emerging within and between psychiatric and psychological knowledge.
The hearing of voices is generally regarded as a pathological phenomenon — a form of mental illness.
This title challenges the assumption in psychiatry and psychology that hearing voices has a pathological basis, and contains information from people who hear voices but who have found traditional clinical approaches unhelpful. It also provides information on an alternative approach to hearing voices. He has brought both the philosophy and struggle of the Hearing Voices Network to life. A Guide to setting up and running support groups for people who hear voices, see visions or experience tactile or other sensations.
