People with Learning Disabilities hear voices too: Workshop
This workshop will be led by Dr John Cheetham, Senior Clinical Psychologist and Dr Nina Melunsky, Clinical Psychologist at South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
John and Nina are clinical psychologists working in mental health in learning disability teams in South London. They have been developing services for people with learning disabilities who hear voices or see visions that others cannot see or hear. Sometimes these kinds of experiences might get called ‘a diagnosis of psychosis’. They have also published a book called ‘People with intellectual disabilities hear voices too’ as a study guide for family and paid supporters. They will share some of their experiences of developing resources and how they have adapted best practice to help meet the needs of people with learning disabilities who hear voices and their supporters.
