Annie met John Read at his farewell lecture in Auckland. Professor John Read is a member of the Hearing Voices Network, and has done great research on psychosis and hearing voices.
Sadly he is leaving to take up a new post in UK, but hope to see him again soon.
Here are some links to
1) ISPS NZ – the International Society for the Psychological and social approaches to Psychosis.
