NAMI South Bay thanks its guests and members for a productive discussion at last night’s meeting. The group discussed the Hearing Voices support group at Harbor UCLA, led by Brad Stevens, LCSW, Psychiatric Social Worker. Several publications were mentioned and two are shown here with links for those members that were interested in following up:
Living with Voices–50 Stories of Recovery
Hearing Voices a Common Human Experience
Brad Stevens, LCSW, Psychiatric Social Worker at Harbor UCLA Medical Center, will present on a movement called “Hearing Voices” at our monthly meeting Monday, March 17, 2014. The movement addresses the symptom of hearing voices that medication may not eliminate and how addressing the voices may assist in recovery. For everyone’s consideration, we will discuss developments in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands of techniques to address the voices to avoid the anxiety and stigma of hearing voices that helps the individual and families address them in their own explanatory framework.
The meeting will begin at the usual time, 7:30 p.m., in the Fellowship Hall at First Lutheran Church, 2900 Carson Street, Torrance, California. A Caring & Sharing Support Group for family members and caregivers only will meet at 6:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room at the First Lutheran Church. If the group becomes too large a second group will meet in Fellowship Hall.
