Description

People with Learning Disabilities Hear Voices Too is a unique publication that aims to address a gap in understanding the experiences of people with learning disabilities who hear voices, and how best to offer support in practical, person-centred ways. It draws on best practice guidance on psychosis and also learning disability from NICE and from the British Psychological Society.

The self-study guide covers current knowledge on evidence-based theories of understanding voice-hearing, as well as common ways of understanding these experiences as described by voice-hearers, included in supportive video footage.

Contents include:

  • Myth and jargon busting
  • How people with learning disabilities are affected by voice-hearing
  • Theories of voice-hearing
  • Role of trauma
  • Evidence-based interventions
  • Common triggers and coping skills
  • Communication skills
  • How do we use this knowledge in practice?
  • How and when to seek help from services

A complementary resource pack and training pack are in development.
