This workshop is open to people with lived experience, family members, and clinicians. Working creatively with psychosis is a one-day practice workshop that will explore how we can use Voice Dialogue, Body Dialogue and Voice Sculpting ways of working that can enable clients to explore the most difficult parts of their distress in a safe and secure environment. Rooted in a narrative approach of working and building on work carried out by Micheal & Cheryl White, Marius Romme & Sandra Escher, Eleanor Longdon, Rufus May & Elisabeth Svanholmer and Dirk Corstens.
This workshop will explore the use of the techniques above both as a theory and a practice. Taylor and her husband Ron Coleman have been successfully using these techniques with voice hearers, people who see visions, people with belief systems that are different and other extreme states. They have also found it useful for clients with the label of Borderline. Moving beyond the concept of illness to one of wellbeing is will be the focus of the workshop breaking it down to series of interactive conversations and exercises that participants will be able to use in their work or lives.
