Our first Zoom training

Voices Unlocked provides many popular trainings for those working [with]in forensic or detention settings and the three day facilitation training, in particular, is central to our aims. Having had to cancel the 3-day training booked for April, we wanted to ensure that those registered were offered something that could help them in their work. With that in mind, on Thursday 30th April we hosted a 3hr ‘Introduction to Hearing Voices’ Zoom training which we hope provided a taster for those wanting to know more about alternative ways of understanding and working with the ‘Hearing Voices’ experience.

‘Zoom’ has quickly become a software that we are all using, whether in a personal or professional capacity (or in that ‘in-between space’ of the virtual pub quiz). As with most initial meet-ups there were a few technical difficulties. Amazon deliveries; involvement of pets; someone being unmuted even though the ‘mute all’ button had been pressed…

In conclusion though, both in the main room and in the breakout rooms we were able to discuss and explore what we understood by the term ‘Hearing Voices’ and why individuals may have these experiences — as well as trying to acknowledge how our frameworks impact our responses to the experience of others.
