Hearing Voices Group Facilitation Training

February 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - February 19, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

In this 3-day training, voice hearers and people who experience other extreme/altered states will come together with people who have not experienced these states. The result is a powerful, diversified environment for learning, and a solid foundation for setting up and facilitating groups. Peers, professionals and allies are welcome: priority to those committed to creating a group.

This Hearing Voices Facilitators Training, presented by Kate Hill & John Herold, will give you the skills and knowledge to run Hearking Voices and Extreme States supported groups!

Hearing Voices Groups (also called Voices, Visions and Extreme States groups) are a peer-led place to share and explore voices and any other kind of unusual and extreme experience, in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. These states are sometimes labeled psychosis, but HVN embraces a much wider view of human possibilities.
