Trauma Informed Voice Professional
(Level 4 Course)

Our Trauma-Informed Practitioner course is for voice practitioners who are looking to gain an understanding of trauma and how it can influence the choices we make in our working environment.

What level is the course, and what does it mean?

The course is level 4, which is equivalent to the undergraduate level. Level 4 consists of 4 core learning outcomes:

  • Contextualization of knowledge – The course is designed to give you an understanding of trauma within the context of the voice studio
  • Critical Thinking – You will review the existing research, considering the professional boundaries involved with being trauma-informed. You will evaluate ethics and critically assess what trauma-informed practice means for your studio.
  • Praxis and Technique – You will embed the knowledge into your practice and consider how an understanding of the impact of trauma on the individual may shape your practice
  • Research and Communication – You will submit a 3,000-word review illustrating contextual knowledge, critical thinking, boundary awareness, and practice implications.

What kind of award is it?

It is a customized award validated by The Voice Study Centre. It is possible to translate into Masters level credit and use it towards the MA.

How will the course be delivered?

The course is online and delivered via pre-recorded video. You will also be given a selection of reading and detailed guidance on how to write to level 4 standard.

What does the course qualify me to do?

The course constitutes valuable CPD, and the knowledge will facilitate a trauma-sensitive practice. Your role as a voice professional will be enriched. You must remain within your scope of practice as a voice professional, and the qualification does not contain therapeutic content.

Will a tutor be on hand if I need one?

Although the course is designed to be self-sufficient, you may access a tutor if you need one. You may also submit a draft of your essay.

Will I receive a certificate?
