Hearing Voices

Synopsis
Traditional clinical psychology postulates that people who hear voices are mad, but Dutch psychiatrist Professor Marius Romme argues that the voices people hear relate to their own thoughts and that they can learn to live with them. Explores the arguments for focusing on what the voices say, rather than suppressing them with medication.
