Monday, November 12th, 2012 - Richmond Fellowship WA
On 19 November 2012, Richmond Fellowship WA proudly presents three of the world’s leading forces in mental health Recovery, as panellists in a Symposium titled “Recovery: Putting It Into Practice”.

Co-Founders of the global Hearing Voices Movement, Prof. Dr. Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher, will be joined by internationally reputed speaker/trainer, Ron Coleman, to explore experiences and draw on expertise to create a realistic picture of how Recovery works in a contemporary mental health framework.

Prof. Dr. Romme is a social psychiatrist that has gained significant respect from people who use psychiatric services, family members of people with mental ill health and fellow professionals regarding his pioneering work and research on the experience of hearing voices.  He is the co-founder and principal theorist for the Hearing Voices Movement that has spawned the development of hearing voices networks and support groups across 22 countries around the world.

Dr Esher is a journalist and researcher and a significant person in the journey and development of the Hearing Voices Movement.  She is co-founder of the Hearing Voices Approach and the Maastricht interview tool for voice hearers, the interview of self-harm, and co-designed the interview on paranoia.  Dr Esher has dedicated over 25 years of her life to supporting people who hear distressing voices make meaning of their experience.

Ron Coleman has an international reputation as a speaker, trainer, consultant and author.  His work in innovative Recovery-based practice, service design, working with psychosis, distressing voices and sexual abuse has been taught around the world.  Ron is a past National Coordinator of the Hearing Voices Network and responsible for the development of the Hearing Voices Network in the UK, Australia and many other countries around the world.  He is currently a director of Working To Recovery Limited.

The event is a must for people working in the mental health sector with a keen interest in progressive thinking and practice.
