This one-day awareness training will specifically develop skills enabling people to work in a one-to-one capacity with those who hear voices.

This training will lead to better understanding of how hearing voices, seeing visions and having other sensory experiences and beliefs might affect people within a secure setting.

Topics covered include:

  • Exploring diverse experiences & understandings of voices, visions & ‘psychosis’
  • Coping strategies
  • Pathways to recovery

This workshop is free for those who work in an Immigration Removal Centre, Prison or Forensic Unit (medium-high secure). We welcome enquiries from staff in all roles inclusive of officers and safer custody departments, mental health and healthcare teams.
