Hearing Voices Group Facilitation Course
FREE 3-day course – 10.00am – 4.00pm Friday 16th, Friday 23rd & Friday 30th November 2018
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.
Since 2010, we have been working to set up Hearing Voices Groups in prisons, forensic secure units and Immigration Removal Centres. This network in secure settings is the first of its kind, we now have more than 20 groups across Greater London, the South and the Midlands.
This 3-day course is open to people across the country who would like to develop a Hearing Voices Group in a prison, IRC, medium or high secure unit.
We shall cover the following:
- Diverse experiences & understandings of voices, visions, beliefs & ‘psychosis’ in secure forensic settings
- Coping strategies and pathways to recovery
- Power & empowerment within secure settings
- Practical Hearing Voices Group facilitation skills, including dealing with difficult situations/problem solving
- Planning, launching & sustaining hearing voices groups
Grounded in lived experience, and our work supporting people in different secure settings, we use powerpoint slides, practical activity and discussion to cater to a variety of learning styles.
‘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
The course is free for those committed to facilitating a Hearing Voices Group within a prison, IRC, medium or high secure unit.
