17th & 18th September 2009 to be held in in Maastricht, Holland.

For the first time we are bringing together experts by experience (voice hearers) – alongside a multidisciplinary group of workers - from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and the United States who together will present experiences, research findings and results from practice.

Our World Congress will provide evidence to support the growing recognition that it is essential for voice hearers to understanding their own experience -and - why it is important for voice hearers to accept their voices, as part of themselves, in order to learn to cope with them. Further, we will explore why it is essential for professionals to acknowledge the value of the experience in order to assist and support people who hear voices and/or experience psychosis.
Join us at our ground breaking congress and participate in the sharing of experiences, practice and research with over 70 presenters.
