Abstract

It seems logical that understanding ‘hearing voices’ should begin with listening to voices. Whilst some have turned a deaf ear to what the voices people hear are actually like, considering it irrelevant or even potentially harmful to even ask about, many have listened. This chapter will examine what this accumulated listening tells us, and thereby give an overview of what is formally termed the phenomenology of the voice-hearing experience. This is of importance because in order to be able to develop meaningful and accurate models of the causes of voice-hearing, and to aid the development of psychological interventions for those distressed by their voices, we need to know about the phenomenology of voice-hearing.
