"Thank you Pat for allowing me to understand what a person goes through
on a daily basis. I don't have sympathy. I have empathy. "
"I have a greater respect for what they go through,
and the courage it must take to get through each day. "
"The Simulation was very powerful.
Now I understand why patients want to talk about their voices."
"I could not stop talking about it.
I know how to better understand my patients."
This toolkit contains everything needed to run a Simulation. The digital files include: a Presenter’s Manual, documents for printing, videos of Pat Deegan discussing the experience of Hearing Distressing Voices, and the Voices Soundtrack for use during the Simulation.

Over a dozen studies have demonstrated the Simulation increases empathy. It is an evidence-based practice used throughout the world.
Developed by Patricia E. Deegan, PhD, "Hearing Voices" is a groundbreaking simulation that helps individuals, students, and professionals understand the challenges faced by people with psychiatric disabilities. During the simulation, participants listen to distressing voices through headphones while completing a series of tasks, such as taking a mental status exam in a mock emergency room. During the debriefing, even veteran mental health workers say that they have gained new insights into the strength and resilience of those of us with psychiatric disabilities.
The Hearing Voices Simulation Toolkit contains everything you will need to conduct the workshop in your organization. The digital downloads include:
Preloaded MP3 players are an easy way to provide the Hearing Distressing Voices Simulation audio to your Simulation participants.
Both the Economy and the Premium Mp3 players come preloaded with the Simulation Audio, as well as chargers and earbuds.
The Economy player is our most budget-friendly option (and can be less user-friendly), while the Premium is a higher quality, more reliable MP3 player.
Once you place your order, you will receive an email with instructions on accessing the Digital Toolkit.
If you have also purchased MP3 players, it usually takes 4-5 business days for domestic orders and 7-10 business days for international orders to receive them. We will contact you when your order ships and provide you with a tracking number.
