3-Day Hearing Voices Approach Training (June)

Event description

These are free events designed for members of the public clinical mental health workforce in Victoria, (staff employed at Area Mental Health Services, Forensicare or mental health staff from RCH) and lived experience workforces (LEW) working in either public clinical or community mental health state-funded roles. Other workforce in partner organisations, such as AOD organisations or ACCHOs, may sometimes be eligible. Please note, if you do register for an event and it is not clear you are part of the intended audience, your registration will be confirmed two weeks prior to the event start date, or earlier. 

This training aligns to Capability 10 (Delivering compassionate care, support and treatment) of the Victorian Mental Health & Wellbeing Workforce Capability Framework.

This course is the foundation to the Hearing Voices Approach. The first 2 days will give you a solid understanding of applying the approach in many practical settings, either for yourself, in your work as a mental health professional or in your family/home environment.

The final day covers Voice Profiling - a set of accessible strategies that help build greater awareness and understanding of a person’s voices. By the end of this training, you will have more tools & confidence to work with people’s voice hearing experiences.

This training is for all disciplines in clinical services including medical and nursing staff.

Hearing Voices Approach:

  • Hearing voices is a common human experience
  • Recovery is about changing the relationship with the voices and transforming the voice hearers’ experiences to acceptance
  • The experience of hearing voices is meaningful
  • We define ‘hearing voices’ as an umbrella term used to refer to auditory, visual, olfactory sensory experiences, and beliefs that others around them do not experience

Delivery Mode – 3 x 5.5 hour Virtual Training Session -  18, 19 & 25 June 2024 (10am to 3:30pm)


This course is delivered online. Sessions are hosted via Zoom.
