I ignored the voices or tried not to listen to them but it was just one time out of two that I found these strategies useful. I then tried to scold the voices in my head, and sang to them about four times a week, and this turned out to be the most effective method… I could not reject the voices but gradually accepted their existence though I did not like them. There were also other strategies, such as going to bed, reading books, listening to songs, going to the library, trying to relax, and talking with family members; however, they were found not to be very effective in coping with the voices most of the time, as Participant David noted: I ignored the voices when I was not interested in them… I found it more effective if I sometimes argued with the voices. I was happy when I won through my sound argument and the voices would stop at times… I also set boundaries with the voices so that the voice identities only giggled to themselves instead of speaking to me… I consider my active reaction to the voices was the most effective way to deal with them.
