IAS Public Lecture - The First Steps: Principles and Evidence Base of Accepting and Making Sense of Voices

5th December 2011, 18:00 to 19:15, Rosemary Cramp Lecture Theatre, Calman Learning Centre, Science Site, South Road, Durham, Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher

This is the second lecture to be given by Professor Romme and Dr Escher.

Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher are world experts in voice-hearing and are visiting fellows of the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University. In their second public lecture they will: outline the core concepts in their approach to accepting and making sense of voices; review similarities and differences between voice-hearers who become patients and voice-hearers who do not, concentrating on the emotional response to voices and the role of traumatic experience; present findings from their recent study of fifty voice-hearers; outline the ten steps necessary for recovery; discuss the importance for voice hearers of learning to talk about their experience in a structured way; and invite participants from the voice-hearing workshops held in Durham to tell their story.

Professor Romme and Dr Escher are IAS Fellows in Durham working along with members of the Hearing the Voice group.

All welcome
