Introduction to Voicecraft for Speech Pathologists - Adult OR Paediatric (1 day)

$290.00

Description

These 1 day workshop are designed for generalist clinicians who see voice clients from time to time and who want to find out the latest trends, discoveries and applications of research in voice assessment and treatment. The focus of the workshop is meeting the needs of the group – answering the questions YOU bring to the workshop and discussing the issues and clinical challenges you face with your caseloads. At each workshop case studies relevant to either the Adult OR the Paediatric population will be discussed.

Half of the workshop is dedicated to introducing participants to Voicecraft as it is today. Since 2012, Voicecraft has been under the directorship of Cate Madill, researcher and clinician, and consequently, the content contained in the Voicecraft approach has been updated, re-imagined and revitalised. It now includes new information about the processes of vocal change and scientifically proven therapeutic tools for measurable improvement in voice production. This course introduces participants to the basic principles of Voicecraft, and the Voicecraft Matrix, use of case studies, basic skills training and clinical decision making discussions.

If you work in or with voice, and you haven’t done a Voicecraft workshop in the last 5 years or at all, this workshop is for you.

A manual is provided.  Certificates are awarded for participation.

NB : Completion of this workshop does not contribute towards Application of Voicecraft in Therapy (AViT) certification.
