- Mental health professionals are supposed to work within a recovery-orientated culture of mental health service provision.
- Despite a drive towards training mental health professionals in recovery-orientated ways of working, there remains a distinct lack of complementary approaches to the biological paradigm when working with experiences such as voice hearing.
- The Hearing Voices Movement has been a great influence within the Recovery Movement in the past 26 years. However, their self-reported benefits appear to have been largely confined to the user movement.
- The evidence from this review indicates the constraints of knowledge within biological research to schizophrenia and hearing voices. It also highlights a lack of quantifiable research to the individualized approach of the Hearing Voices Movement, also known as Experience Focused Counselling or Making Sense of Voices.
