An Introduction to Accepting Voices
Hearing distressing voices is one of the most common experiences of people diagnosed with a psychotic disorder. Research has shown that many people continue to hear voices even after prolonged use of medication. As a consequence, people who hear voices commonly live lives that are low in quality and high is distress.
