Charlie Heriot-Maitland: Compassion for Voices - Science and Application
In 2015, Charles and his collaborators released a short film called ‘Compassion for Voices’. Since then, the film has been widely viewed, translated into different languages, featured in TV documentaries, and has been frequently used as a resource for education, training, and therapy in mental health. But what is really going on in this film? What are the ideas behind it? What can we do with these ideas to actually improve our relationships to voices? In this talk, Charles explores the scientific understandings and research behind each aspect of the film, and then demonstrates how these can be translated into real-life practices, techniques, and experiences for voice-hearers. Some feedback from voice-hearers who have watched the film is also presented. This talk is a recording of a webinar Charles presented for ISPS-US on 11/11/16.
The voices in my head
To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Eleanor tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.
Compassion for Voices: a tale of courage and hope
A film about the compassionate approach to relating with voices, with potential for use as a therapeutic, educational, and de-stigmatising tool.

Embedding and Assessing Compassion on the University Curriculum
In this film, university academics from a range of disciplines set out why the science of compassion is making an impact on how group work in universities can be run - and why assessing students use of compassionate micro skills in group work is rational, practical and ethical. Students demonstrate the skills, in action, in their discussion group work,showing some typical problematic behaviours - taking over, or not contributing - and how these can be disrupted, often non verbally.
Statistical evidence, analysed by three UK universities, indicates how putting compassion on the university curricula enhances not just student wellbeing. It is also impacting students' academic performance, compared to students in control groups. The film shows how allocating credit (for use of compassionate micro skills) towards degree attainment, is supported by a growing body of research in a range of fields and disciplines.
