Hearing Voices Group Facilitator Training, presented by the Hearing Voices Network (HVN)
Time & Location
About the Event
This workshop is a total of 24 hours over a 2-week period.
We will be meeting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:00 to 4:00 pm MDT from April 19th to April 30th, 2021.
This training will prepare you to become a Hearing Voices Group Facilitator!
Hearing Voices groups originated in Europe and there are now hundreds of groups in 30 countries around
the world. Hearing Voices groups do not pathologize voices, visions or other unusual experiences.
Instead, group members explore these phenomena in an environment of mutual support and curiosity.
They offer people who hear voices, see visions or have other unusual experiences the opportunity to share
their experience and explore new ways of coping, understanding their experiences and getting support.
Each of the trainers is an experienced facilitator and all are voice hearers.
Cindy Marty Hadge is a person who experienced physical, emotional, sexual and medical trauma as a child. She experienced voice vision and thoughts of ending her life, while growing up. As a young adult she turned to alcohol and street drugs in an effort to make life livable. Currently Cindy has found the meaning, purpose and connection that she longed for and has made a way of making sense of the senseless and is transforming her tragedies into treasures by being healed when creating space for others to heal. Cindy is gender non-conforming and has presented both as Cindy and Marty. Cindy is a keynote speaker and an international award winning trainer for The Hearing Voices Approach.
Tásha Pearce experienced voices and visions since childhood, but it wasn’t until those experiences became overwhelming as a young adult that she fell into the psychiatric system, where she experienced a loss of purpose and connection. After she tried to end her life, Tásha decided to make changes by seeking out community in the Wildflower Alliance and reconnecting with her art. Tásha has worked as an advocate for 4 years, supporting folks in locked units and the community. Tásha facilitates Hearing Voices and Alternative to Suicide groups, and has presented on the Hearing Voices Network at iNAPs, NAMI Massachusetts, and Hearing Voices Facilitator trainings.
