Diagnosable conditions and Clinical Disorders   WARNING


It is important to recognise that Voice dialogue is NOT a treatment (as some people claim) for a diagnosable condition, disease or illness.

If it is a clinical condition a health professional is able to give a name to, if it involves medical treatment (apart from basic prescription drugs) and particularly if the symptoms are listed in DSM IV ; DSM V or later editions

Then....


DO NOT attempt to use Voice Dialogue to treat, heal or fix the condition


NOTES on Dissociative  Identity Disorder ( DID)

NOTES on Developmental Trauma Disorder ( DTD)

NOTES on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

NOTES on EMDR Why and how  it works so well with PTSD

Now that I have made that clear please let me add that it may be useful to have a Voice Dialogue session with the person who has the condition and talk with her or his inner selves who can give you some very useful information about the condition and the way that person is experiencing that condition.


Keep in mind that we all have ‘multiple’ personalities which is normal, even essential for life, and we all experience words coming from somewhere inside us telling us what to do or what not to do. Voice Dialogue helps us talk with those voices, listen and learn from them.  When one voice inside you says “Yes, do it this way” and another voice says “No, do it that way” you are not crazy, it’s normal.

Voice Dialogue helps you to see this and feel OK about it, look at both sides of the issue (always a good idea). From there you can sit between the two opposite points of view and learn to balance the two opposite energies.


A trained body dialogue and voice dialogue facilitator can also dialogue for example with your back or neck pain and find out if the pain is physical or if it is more an inner self trying to draw your attention to something that you need to notice about yourself.


But even body dialogue should not be attempted unless the facilitator has had wide experience in the body dialogue and voice dialogue process and holds a wide range of professional indemnity insurance. It is not for amateurs.


Diagnosable conditions including bipolar disorders, extreme suicidal pr psychopathic behaviour,  Dissociative Identity Disorder  (DID) Narcissistic and Borderline Disorders, and especially Schizophrenia should not be dialogued even by a professional unless specially trained and qualified to work safely with that particular diagnosable condition. (and the practitioner has extensive professional liability insurance.)
