You are invited to be a part of the 13° World Hearing Voices Congress, happening on November 4th and 5th 2022, in Porto Alegre/RS Brazil. Please fell welcomed to join both the event in its scheduled actions and the numerous pre-event activities.
This Congress is a unique opportunity for each individual to express your own lived experience and your knowledge, whether its lived or theoretical expertise with voice hearing, in an environment of respect, openness and listening.
Hearing voices is a common human experience. Many voice hearers have found a way to live with their voices. Nonetheless, some people have had many troubles and issues with the voices they hear.
Voice Hearers come from a long history of stigma, pathologization, exclusion and human rights violations.
The Worldwide Voice Hearers Movement aims to help those who hear voices to find a way of living with their voices and to emancipate the experiences of voice hearing.
The Institution invites every one of you to get together at the 13th World Hearing Voices Congress, to learn with each other, about voices, emancipations and human rights!
Promote the debate
Potentializing the partnerships between professionals, voice hearers, families and community. Helping to develop a broader conscience, objectivity and a much more productive relationship between the voices, the hearer and the professionals.
Offer a neutral but strong attitude in working with voices. Acceptance is the central point of the approach. This method does not focus on voices as a symptom of an "illness" nor does it focus on finding out what is "wrong" with the person.
Raise awareness of professionals and health workers about the importance of building new strategies for approaching people who hear voices, together with the voice hearers and their families.
