Back in the US: Maastricht Training
This training will be offered from Monday July 13th to Wednesday July 15th 2015 (9:30am to 4:30pm each day) @ Holyoke Community College, Kittredge Center, Holyoke, MA.
Trainers will include Peter Bullimore and Hayley Taylor (see below for more details).
This three-day workshop is particularly for people working in clinical or peer roles, and other supporters who are working with people who hear voices or experience other unusual phenomenon. It focuses on teaching participants how to use the Maastricht Interview to support individuals to understand and navigate their experiences.
The Maastricht Interview is a semi-structured questionnaire. It was developed by Dr. Sandra Escher, Professor Marius Romme and voice hearer Patsy Hage as a way to explore the experience of voice hearing in depth, map out voices, and provide the tools needed to build trust, openness and understanding.
Although there is a $190 fee for this training, please note that scholarships are available!
Registration is required and available on a first-come first-serve basis. Click here for a registration form
