Marius Romme and Sandra Escher have revolutionised our understanding of voice hearing, and their work has led to a radical new way of helping people who have had this type of experience. In this timely, accessible and important book, they bring together the lessons they have learnt over more than two decades, and provide an opportunity for 50 voice hearers from across the world to tell us their stories. This is essential reading for mental health workers of all professions, which challenges conventional thinking, empowers mental health service users, and looks forward to a more humane approach to psychiatric care. Richard Bentall, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Bangor University, Wales ...rejects the traditional understanding of hearing voices as a symptom of major mental illness whose content is meaningless, and instead proposes that it is a response to trauma that has meaning and can be accepted and worked with to achieve recovery ... 'Living with Voices' is an important book for all those interested in the hearing voices approach. It puts lived experience to the forefront, and demonstrates that it is possible to live with voices and win back control of one's life.
