Presented by Portland Hearing Voices & HVN USA
June 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2015
In this 3-day training, voice hearers and people who experience other extreme/altered states 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 Oryx Cohen and Kate Hill, will give you the skills and knowledge to run Hearing Voices and Extreme States support 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 possibility.
