Psychologist Butcher and speech and language therapists Lesley Cavali and Annie Elis, all practicing in Britain, begin by explaining how to recognize dsyphonia or aphonia caused wholly or in part by psychological or emotional conflict. Then they explore a number of approaches to treating the condition within the framework of cognitive behavior theory. Their topics include assessing patient history, treating symptoms, assessing and treating anxiety, and deciding when not to treat.
