There has been a tremendous growth of interest in the human voice and its disorders during the past decade. This has led to the development of a variety of 'voice labs' or 'voice clinics' that are able to offer unique interdisciplinary assessment and treatment facilities. To cover aJlthe bases, the voice care team requires input frorn laryngology, speech-language pathology, psychiatry, neurology, voice science, music pedagogy, biomedical engineering and other peripheral fields. Because of the multidisciplinary nature of voice dinics there have been a number of books written that address our subject from different professional perspectives. These tend to be multi-authored works that draw on expertise from around the world, such as alaryngologist frorn New York, a speech pathologist from Toronto, etc. All are coJleagues that share similar interests but never actually share the management problems of the same patients. This book has been planned and written by the members ofa single 'voice clinic'iIt is our hope that it willreflect a singleness of direction and purpose in the way it presents our approach to a complex topic. Because of our regular interactive meetings over problem patients inwhich we debate the meaning of our observations, the evolution of etiological dassification systems, and the rationale for particular therapy approaches, we feel that we have become a team that is greater than the sum of its parts, and that there is value in sharing our cumulative thoughts with others. This is not simply a laryngology text for laryngologists.

Since this book was first published, four years ago, there has been a considerable upsurge of interest in the field of both normal and abnormal voice production. Tangible evidence of this lies in the publication of the Journal of Voice in the United States, and in the UK the formation of the British Voice Association. This organization has attracted an increasing membership from professionals involved in all aspects of voice care and use - actors and singers, laryngologists and speech therapists, teachers and phoneticians. The Association holds regular study days, holds an annual two-day symposium, and publishes a Newsletter which attracts entries from this broad spectrum of professionals. We have also seen an increase in the number of specialist voice clinics, and in the two final chapters in this book a contrast is presented between such a specialist setting and the more typical clinic that operates in the majority of general hospitals. This last chapter now contains a breakdown of voice referrals over an eight-year period, which must represent a unique published study in this country. There still remains, however, little research into the management of voice disorders. There is clearly a need for more efficacy studies into specific treatment methods, and the single case-study designs developed in the field of aphasia would seem to be appropriate here.

This second edition retains the successful format of mixing theory and practice, a melding of scientific knowledge with clinical art, which was such a feature of the first edition. In recognition of changes in practice and theory over the past decade, it contains a wealth of new, up-to-date, evidence based material. This blends with a practical approach to clinical efficiencies and management of the voice service. The second edition of "Working with Voice Disorders" provides a sound theoretical framework to this specialism and also offers a rich variety of tried and tested, practical and photocopiable resource material, which is the result of the authors' wide experience, accumulated over several decades in the field of voice therapy. The multi-dimensional structure of the manual allows the clinician to look, not only at specific aspects of patient management, but also at aspects such as clinical effectiveness, clinical efficiencies and service management. The authors' aim is that this resource should provide clinicians with a pragmatic, patient-centred, easy to use and accessible resource, facilitating and informing decision-making along the clinical journey from referral to discharge. The contents of this title include: Anatomy overview; The Spectrum of Voice Disorders; The Case History; Assessment; Treatment Strategies; Management Strategies; Service Provision; Over 50 pages of practical, photocopiable exercises.

Written for SLPs who care for children with vocal disorders, this is the second book by the team who wrote Pediatric Voice Disorders. This new publication is specially designed for SLPs to have access to the medical information at a special price. To that end, certain chapters have been removed from Pediatric Voice Disorders, which focuses on the techniques of surgical care, and other chapters have been reshaped to highlight issues of office based diagnosis and intervention. Several new chapters have been added, including a fascinating and comprehensive chapter by Katherine Verdolini which reviews the literature regarding voice therapy in children as well as an additional chapter on the work-up and treatment of children with Velopharyngeal Insufficiency. The authors have provided a cross-fertilization of thoughts and ideas that comes from putting together a seemingly diverse group of specialists and having them focus on specific pediatric disease-based and pediatric voice pathology-based topics. Within this book, members of each specialty attend to these questions and comment upon how the specialties can best work together towards obtaining diagnoses and rendering unified and comprehensive treatment.
