The voice is a central part of identity, connection, and communication. As such, the psychological effects of a voice disorder, especially for individuals who use their voices professionally, can be profound and wide-reaching. The second edition of Psychology of Voice Disorders is a guide for medical health professionals who care for patients dealing with vocal issues, including mental health professionals, speech-language pathologists, physicians, and other members of the medical team. 

Psychology of Voice Disorders was the first book to offer insights into the psychology of patients with voice disorders, including the interaction between the disorder, treatment, and patient self-esteem. The revised edition builds on the features of the original to provide comprehensive support for professionals treating voice disorders.
