Developed by Patricia Deegan, PhD, “Hearing Voices” is a groundbreaking simulation that helps individuals, students, and professionals understand challenges faced by people who have the experience of hearing voices that are distressing. During the simulation, participants listen to distressing voices through headphones while completing a series of tasks or experiences. Participants have reported that they have gained new insights into the strength and resilience of those who live with mental illness. This training can be 2-4 hours and be customized for specific audiences and includes time for debriefing and discussion of the experience. Individuals who are or who have been voice hearers should not participate in this training. It is essential that participation be voluntary.
