hearing voices movement
   The name Hearing Voices Movement refers to a philosophical trend and self-help movement for individuals with "verbal auditory hallucinations founded during the 1980s by the Dutch psychiatrist Marius Romme (b. 1934) and the Dutch science journalist Sandra Escher (b. 1945). The movement advocates the employment of a variety of techniques developed by individuals who learned to successfully cope with their hallucinations. Key concepts to these coping strategies are acceptance of, and negotiation with, the voices.
