The Hearing Distressing Voices Simulation is a groundbreaking, empathy-building experience which helps students, mental health professionals and first responders understand the challenges and strengths of people who experience psychosis.
"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.
