Are hosting 1 day workshops In Auckland and Wellington
ADVANCED “WORKING WITH VOICES” with Ron Coleman
WLG WORKSHOP WILL RAISE MONEY FOR CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE.
Hearing voices is one of the most common experiences that people diagnosed with a psychotic illness have and research has shown that many people continue to hear voices even after prolonged use of medication. This has meant that many voice hearers do not get relief from their experiences. The consequence of this is that many people live lives that are low in quality and high in distress. Many professionals are left frustrated when medication does not deliver the desired results.
Ron Coleman has been active in the field of mental health since 1991, when affecting his own recovery from mental illness, he used his experiences to develop his ideas for recovery centered treatment of others. Since then he has went on to write numerous books and papers on the subject and was influential in the development of the Hearing Voices Network in the UK. Ron and his partner Karen travel around the world delivering trainings in this field through their company ‘Working To Recovery”. http://workingtorecovery.co.uk RON IS DONATING HIS TIME FOR THE WELLINGTON WORKSHOP TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THOSE EFFECTED BY THE CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE. ALL PROFITS FROM WELLINGTON WWORKSHOP WILL BE DONATED TO THE RED CROSS EARTHQUAKE FUND.
