Trauma And Mental Health Awareness Course For Singing Teachers/Practitioners

Wednesday 9th March 2022, 12:00 PM - Wednesday 16th March 2022 7:00 PM (London Time)

In this two-part course, participants will learn about the nature of trauma and its impact on the body, brain and voice and some of the research surrounding this topic.

Part 1 will be largely focused on the science and theory of trauma and mental health.

Part 2 will explore the relationship with voice and offer ideas for embedding trauma-informed principles in teaching practice.

This is for teachers who would like to gain an overview of the theory and some ideas for practical application, to move their practice towards being trauma and mental health aware.

This is an introductory course and does not qualify participants as trauma and mental health specialists.
