One interest of mine is how people can learn skills so that they can better handle experiences like hearing voices. One key problem with voices is that people often alternate between either trying too hard to get rid of them, or listening to them too much. (There is a “bipolarity” to this, which I think connects with how the mental and emotional problems that get called “schizophrenia” and “bipolar” are not distinctly different.)
Anyway, the article below talks about skills people can learn to get over the side of the problem which is listening too much to the voices. If one can learn to avoid listening too much to the voices, then the fact that they exist at all is not so much of a problem, which naturally might also help a person become less obsessed with getting rid of them. And maybe help the mental health system get less obsessed with getting rid of them?
