Further information:

A practical and theoretical session for voice and singing practitioners to explore some of the neuroscience of trauma and principles for practice.

Based on MA research and a number of years of practice and experience, Emily will give an overview of the impacts of trauma on mental and physical health and share a Trauma and Mental Health Model for Singing and Voice work practice.

This has grown from a study with one-to-one voice and singing with children, but principles can apply across the age ranges and with groups.

I thought you led the group really well, while also giving people the platform to ask questions and also offer up information/experiences. I appreciated that. I was delighted to be part of the group and left the session feeling motivated and further interested in the topic.’
  • ‘It was a wonderful session. The model you have created is good, the information you shared was well-structured and very interesting. It helped me formalise a lot of thoughts I have been having. There was also new material, I loved the model of the triune brain. I also liked the discussion groups.’
  • ‘Thank you so much again for today. There really is so much to take away and I feel fueled with ideas and some new outlooks. I loved all the exercises and examples you gave; you have a gift of being able to explain so clearly and having the time to consolidate with others I find so important. It’s so beneficial to be able to cement and clarify your own learning, thank you for giving us the time to do that – not many do. You gave us some brilliant activities while explaining why you do them and I just found that so wonderful. I very much look forward to learning from you again in the future.’
