Project description

This project studies the subjective experience of Voice Hearing (VH), using the method of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis in three participant groups: schizophrenic, attenuated psychosis, and non-clinical (with VH). The aim is to study how VH affects the experience of identity, the relation to the social, and affective experience. We also study how VH is related to delusional beliefs.
