Voice is the sound of breath vibrating. Without breath, there is no voice. Its flexibility and resonance reflect our state of being, both habitual and fleeting. As an integral part of our interactions with others, it is a constant in our clinical work. If we are not attuned to our clients’ voices, we can miss important cues. If we are not aware of our own voices as therapists, we can undermine our intentions.
In this presentation we will examine voice as a phenomenon – how it works acoustically, emotionally, and energetically to reveal what is hidden behind words and to open possibilities for experimentation. Through didactic and experiential exercises, we will explore the relationship of voice to creative adjustments, interruptions, fixed gestalts, and contact boundaries.
