Admitting one hears voices in their head is not an easy thing to do. When I do intakes at my Post Doc job that is always the hardest question for some to answer. Most do not want to admit it unless they feel that a professional will hear them and not automatically assume they are crazy. It is tough with our Medical Model and our current understanding of Western Psychology. Unfortunately we tend to pathologize symptoms instead of trying to understand them. The link is a WONDERFUL discussion and video of a woman who experienced hearing voices and her struggle after confiding in a friend and her experience with various professionals. Please take some time and check it out. It is wonderful to see a person speak out about this topic considering how difficult it must be to talk about this. In my next post during the week, I will discuss the difficulty in understanding ‘hearing voices’ and the different possibilities for the origin of them.
