Intervoice Congress Image 2012This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of the formation of the Hearing Voices Movement. Over the last 25 years the network has helped countless voice hearers gain ascendancy over the negative impact of the voice hearing experience. Alongside this, the network has acted as the vehicle for change in professional practice. On the 19th 20th and 21st of September 2012 the Hearing Voices World Congress and the annual Intervoice meeting will be held in the All Nations Conference Center, Cardiff, Wales.

The Intervoice meeting will be on 19th September, an Open Space event with speakers, followed by our World Congress on the 20th and 21st September.

Contributors over the three days include:

Hywel Davies (Wales), Marius Romme, Sandra Escher (Belgium), Joe Calleja (Australia), Lucy Johnstone (Wales), Dirk Corstens (Netherlands), Robin Murray (UK, invited) Rufus May (England), Kellie Comans (Australia), Michaela Amering (Austria), Alan Leader (England), Paul Baker (Spain/UK), Peter Bullimore (England) Jacqui Dillon (England), Ron Coleman (Scotland), Rachel Waddingham (England), and Eleanor Longden (England).
