Compassion for Voices – 1 year on
February 23, 2016
A talk for the London Hearing Voices Network with Charlie Heriot-Maitland.
23rd February 2016 marks the 1-year anniversary of the release of the short film, ‘Compassion for Voices’ (compassionforvoices.com). Since then, the film has been translated into 8 different languages, featured in 3 documentaries, and viewed over 40k times on YouTube. But what is really going on in this film? What are the ideas behind it? What can we do with these ideas to actually improve our relationships to voices? In this talk, Charlie will explore the scientific understandings and research behind each aspect of the film, and will then demonstrate how these can be translated into real-life practices, techniques, and experiences for voice-hearers. Some feedback from voice-hearers who have watched the film will also be presented.
