Description

Voice hearing or 'auditory hallucinations' is more common than might be expected, affecting 2-4 per cent of us. It can be experienced as part of a range of mental-health disorders, including schizophrenia, affective psychosis and dissociative conditions. Learning to live with the condition can be challenging; however, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), on which this authoritative self-help guide is based, has been found to be highly effective.show more

Review quote

I have enjoyed using the book with clients and they have commented on its clarity, and particularly valued reading the real life experiences. I think this book is a great resource for people who want to start making somechanges to their voice hearing experience on their own or with the support of those close to them. -- Katherine Pugh * Clinical Psychology Forum * The information presented is up to date with current thinking within the clinical psychology community and research evidence, yet it is presented in an accessible way, with concepts carefully and clearly explained . . . the book would be a great resource for voice-hearers either to read independently or with professional support while participating in cognitive behavioural therapy. I will certainly be recommending it to the voice-hearers I work with and their relatives. I will also be suggesting that other mental health professionals I work with read the book. -- Katherine Berry * Psychosis * A ground-breaking guide on overcoming this distressing condition. * Professor Peter Cooper *show more
