The IIMHN in conjunction with the HSE Nursing and Midwifery Practice Development Unit are organising two workshops focusing on working with young people with voice hearing experiences. The workshops will be facilitated by Rachel Waddingham from Voice Collective. They will take place in April 2014 in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin (7-9 April) and in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, UCC, Cork (14-16 April).
Expressions of interest are now invited from people who have a genuine interest in facilitating/co-facilitating a group and from mental health staff who have agreement and/or opportunities to start a group in the setting in which they work. Joint applications are specifically welcomed from mental health staff (supported by the services they work in), who have an interest in starting and facilitating a group. Others interested in starting a group, ideally those who have identified a service willing to support them to establish a group, are also welcome to apply. There will be no cost for the workshop.
Places on the programme are limited and will be allocated on the basis of and ability to attend all 3 days and a willingness and commitment to start a Hearing Voices group. The application form for the Cork workshop can be downloaded here (Cork form). The application for the Dublin Programme is available here (Dublin Form). Applications for the workshops should be sent to Harry Gijbels (Cork) and Mark Monahan (Dublin)
