Study best practices for voice therapy in Sweden, a country known for its state-of-the-art approaches to voice. Participants will explore cultural and professional issues related to voice production, habilitation, and rehabilitation. We will form hypotheses, rationales, and hierarchies for voice management based on the underlying anatomy and physiology of the voice production system. Students will have the opportunity to refine their voice models, practice entrainment, and learn to provide effective feedback. Experts from Lund University like otolaryngologists and voice clinicians will share their expertise, and we will visit local cultural and historical sites to enrich our program.
