Welcome to my site!

 

This site is about hearing voices.

Together with collaborators I provide lectures, courses, group workshops and individual treatment regarding  hearing voices. Currently I am conducting a research project about the effectiveness of the Maastricht Approach (see 'our approach') and the impact of the courses for voice hearers and professionals (see below). You will find on this website information about the 'Maastricht Approach' and the 'Talking with voices method'. 

My work is inspired by Marius Romme and Sandra Escher,  who started to develop their ideas about hearing voices from the 80's and created a huge paradigm change considering accepting and dealing with hearing voices that appealed to many voice hearers and professionals in the world. As a member of Intervoice, the International Organization for Voice Hearers, I have acquainted many voice hearers whose stories are very inspiring and important for my work. 

I work for the RIAGG Maastricht and Lavori in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Hearing Voices Maastricht is also the name of my company (KvK 14104759). If you want to contract me for lectures or workshops you can contact me via e-mail: dirkcorstens@gmail.com
