Those of us who support children and young people who hear distressing or difficult voices are constantly developing, finding new ways to approach voice-hearing with young people and support them towards their self-defined recovery.

Each young person and family is unique – one size does not fit all.

About This Workshop:

This workshop builds upon the principles explored in our ‘Supporting Children & Young People who Hear Voices’ training, and our ‘Voice Collective Group Facilitation Training’.

Using examples drawn from attendee’s prior experience of working with young voice-hearers, the workshop explores the following topics:

  • Developing trust and therapeutic relationships with young people who may not trust easily
  • Understanding ‘taboo voices’ (voices that talk about things the young person – and society – find very difficult, including violence & sexuality)
  • Finding safe ways of talking about voices and visions with young people in distress
  • Working with different, and often conflicting, perspectives on a young person’s experiences
  • Working with alternative belief systems (e.g. cultural or spiritual perspectives)
  • Using creativity to support conversations
  • Applying this learning within the workplace

We keep class sizes small to maximise the opportunity for discussion & reflection.

We require applicants to have attended either our ‘Supporting Children and Young People who Hear Voices’ training course, or our ‘Voice Collective Group Facilitation’ training course.


This is a FREE training course for anyone working with children or young people who hear voices, see visions, or have other sensory experiences.
