Diane is a clinical psychologist who has worked with children and adults affected by a range of social and psychological issues, including mental health difficulties, drug and alcohol use, and physical illness.
Diane currently works in an Early Intervention Service, with young people (age 14+) who are either at risk of developing psychosis, or are experiencing their first episode of psychosis.
In this workshop, participants will explore the myths and facts about hearing voices, unusual beliefs, paranoia, and psychosis. Using case discussion and experiential exercises, Diane will introduce some of the recovery-focused therapeutic approaches for working with voices and psychosis. Participants will be encouraged to consider how they might creatively use some of these approaches in their own practice.
This workshop is aimed at practitioners working with children and young adults. It will aim to increase practitioners’ confidence in working with young people who hear voices, including assessing and managing risk.
