Hearing Voices Curriculum: Complete training and curriculum package

By Patricia Deegan, PhD

Hearing Voices That Are Distressing is a complete training/curriculum package in which participants use headphones for listening to a specially designed recording.  During this simulated experience of hearing voices, participants undertake a series of tasks including social interaction in the community, a psychiatric interview, cognitive testing, and an activities group in a mock day treatment program.  The simulation experience is followed by a debriefing and discussion period.  The curriculum also includes a one hour recorded lecture.

Visit the Hearing Voices Curriculum page at the NEC Store

Hearing Voices that are Distressing:  A Simulated Training Experience and Self-Help Strategies

Just as rehabilitation students gain insight into the experience of physical disability by using wheelchairs, so too can mental health professionals and students experience a simulation of some of the challenges facing people with psychiatric disabilities.
