Example text

This measures key beliefs about auditory hallucinations including benevolence, malevolence and two dimensions of relationship with the voice: ‘engagement’ and ‘resistance’. It, like its companion assessment The Cognitive Assessment Schedule, is usually completed on the most dominant voice: in this case, the most dominant commanding voice. The Cognitive Assessment Schedule (CAS – Chadwick and Birchwood, 1995) is used in conjunction with the BAVQ-R to assess further the individual’s feelings and behaviour in relation to the voice, and his/her beliefs about the voice’s identity, power, purpose or meaning and the likely consequences of obedience or resistance.

This was developed as a research instrument, but for ordinary clinical assessment the clinician can obtain from the patient (or other informant, such as a relative) a description of all the commands and associated behaviours (compliance or resistance) within the previous eight weeks where they felt compelled to respond. e. e. preparatory acts or gestures (3); partial compliance with at least one severe command (4); full compliance with at least one severe command (5). , 2000) (see Appendix 1). This measures the perceived relative power differential between the voice (usually the most dominant voice) and the voice hearer, with regard to the components of power including strength, confidence, respect, ability to inflict harm, superiority and knowledge.

In pursuing this goal the therapist explores and challenges with the client the inferences that make the likelihood of severe punishment seem so compelling and certain. Where catastrophic beliefs are identified, for example, the therapist can explore the idea that obeying the command is a kind of safety behaviour preventing disconfirmation and these beliefs can be challenged and tested by the techniques described above. Switching voices on and off Once the person is able to take a more detached view of her subjective experience she can achieve a greater sense of control over the voices by learning to initiate and stop voice activity.
