MA Voice Pedagogy Bursary Student Published In The VSRTuesday 15th November 2022
We are so proud that MA Voice Pedagogy bursary student Judith Wodzak, has been published in VASTA’s Voice and Speech Review (VSR)!
A short synopsis of the article:
‘Functional Voice Disorders (FVDs) have been given multiple different labels in research and clinical practice (ex: Muscle Tension Dysphonia, Psychogenic Dysphonia).
However, this is a diagnosis of exclusion, and research suggests that factors such as muscle tension or psychological impacts do not apply equally to the entirety of this patient population.
Instead, it may be helpful to think of FVDs as complex, multifactorial conditions that exist on a spectrum.
This article outlines different contributing factors and proposes some helpful frameworks for addressing them with our clients.’
