dc.description.abstractBackground: This is the second of two papers that investigated the effectiveness of a group-based program known as ‘Coping with Voices’. The first paper reported on the group facilitators experience of delivering the program. This second paper reports the findings from the participants.Method: Of the 61 participants that gave informed consent to participate in the study 19 did not attend a group, so this provided a natural quasi-control group. The study compared pre and post primary measures for the 42 participants who attended a group. 29 group attendees also provided qualitative data. Secondary measures were measured longitudinally for all 61 participants. Individuals who participated in the program were compared to those individuals who did not.Results: For the 42 voice hearers who attended Coping with Voices, the quantifiable data showed a significant reduction in negative beliefs about voices, voice severity, distress about voices and the perceived power of the voices. Participant feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The secondary measures show a significant reduction in the number of hospital admissions and an improvement in basis life skills for group attendees versus non-attendees at 12 months follow up. Conclusions: Overall, these findings suggest ‘Coping with Voices’ is feasible, acceptable and worthwhile.
