GAVE THIS TO A FRIEND WHO IS SUFFERING WITH SEVERE DEPRESSION AND DISTURBING VOICES AND SHE HAS FOUND IT REALLY HELPFUL IN UNDERSTANDING WHY THIS HAPPENS AND HOW TO TAKE ACTIONS BEFORE THE VOICES TAKE HOLD
Interesting and helpful book - perhaps it should be made available for all people effected and supporting people coping with voices - doctors, hospitals and teams in the community as well as well as more funding for this area and research.
After the recent news headlines identifying the lack of talking therapy available for those with Schizophrenia, this book has been introduced at the perfect time. As a student I felt it explained the experience of voice hearing in a simple and pragmatic manner - giving an insight into the clinical practice of applied CBT. The book involves no jargon or technical terms, making it an easy read for all. The structure of the book allows you to dip in and out of the techniques, picking and choosing the parts relevant to your needs. Techniques are illustrated using a case study, bringing the theory back to the person and the problem. A brilliant book that fills a gap within the current field of self- help literature.
