Peter Bullimore, internationally recognised lived experience trainer in Hearing Voices and Paranoia, has developed an online program across these areas. His program combines work with the Maastricht Interview schedule in both areas. This innovative program is being run in Connecticut on line and Peter has contacted Recovery Matters to offer it in Western Australia and other states.
The program spans several sessions which include off line activity by participants and online support as well as direct teaching on line.
If agencies are interested in training a group of staff, or individuals wish to access the training, please contact Joe Calleja at firstname.lastname@example.org
