The Hearing Voices Network is a bright light in the darkness of approaches to people who have seemingly “alternative” experiences that psychiatrists classify as psychosis and demean with diagnoses like schizophrenia.   The centerpiece of today’s show is a marvelous 24-year-old woman, Alison Branitsky, who has been hearing voices since she was a child and who managed miraculously to escape destruction in the psychiatric system as a teenager.  My other guest, the magnificent psychologist John Read, and myself are mainly catalysts to the presentation that Alison makes personally and as a leader in the Hearing Voices Network USA.  I know I have been especially enthusiastic about many of my recent shows; but I can guarantee you will learn from and be inspired by Alison and by the existence of the worldwide Hearing Voices movement.   In you are in the field of mental health, and know little about this movement, please, please, please watch or listen to this show.  If you have any interest in the genuine internal life of us humans, you too should pay attention to Alison Branitsky and the hearing voices movement.
