Over the past 20 years, accounts from both the user movement and from clinical research on voice hearing has led to fundamentally different approaches to working with disturbing voices including communicating with and understanding voices, accepting them, talking about them and learning to relate them to one's personal context (Romme and Escher 1989, 1993, 2000; Corstens et al., 2008; Romme et al., 2009). In a continuation of this work, we have developed a technique that not only provides an opportunity to talk about voices but also with voices.
