THE YOUNG PEOPLE'S SECTION
This section has mainly been written for young people and children who hear voices. The information is largely derived from a three-year study with 80 children and adolescents interviewed about their experiences, ranging in age from 8 to 19 years at first contact. Little is known about voice hearing in young people and children. Most people have the notion that it is a disease for life. In this book, readers will find extensive information about how to look differently at voice hearing; learning to deal with it and discovering what might help to cope with the voices.
THE PARENTS /ADULTS SECTION
It is clear that parents of young people and children hearing voices are given very little information. Any information the parents find is almost always based on the assumption that voice hearing is a serious disease. We noticed that the young people and children of those parents who dared to explore and go their own way were doing better. This book is for all parents, teachers, carers and all adults who want to learn more.
