With this exciting new edition, the study of voice disorders comes out of its infancy and into the modern era of care for the voice!

With Voice Disorders, Fourth Edition, authors Christine Sapienza, PhD and Bari Hoffman, PhD have created a comprehensive package for learning. The authors uniquely blend voice science with voice treatments ranging from traditional interventions to recent advances in cellular therapies, muscle strength training, and treatments for special populations. The text has been extensively updated with clinical evidence-based information and comes with a robust online companion website including a study workbook, videos, audio files, and case studies.

This fourth edition offers a comprehensive combined study of the respiratory, laryngeal, and neurological subsystems for voice. Therapy approaches are categorized in terms of type, such as physiologic, combined modality, and hygienic. The new edition expands the approaches to voice therapy, and better defines clinical decision making with information about humanistic communication strategies, adherence, and the multitude of variables that influence patient outcomes.

Christine Sapienza

Christine Sapienza, PhD, CCC-SLP, serves as the Dean of the Jacksonville University, Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences. Previously, Dr. Sapienza was a longstanding tenured professor and chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Florida, as well as a research career scientist at the Brain Rehabilitation Research Center at the Malcom Randall Veterans Administration Hospital. As a principal investigator of National Institutes of Health grants, VA Research Rehabilitation Research and Development Awards, and a M.J. Fox Foundation grant, Dr. Sapienza has provided extensive mentoring to 16 doctoral students, all of whom have contributed back to academics and clinical service. She has built a strong national and international reputation for expertise in the design and implementation of larger scale randomized clinical trials examining treatments as well as the careful reporting of peer-reviewed outcomes from these studies. Dr. Sapienza methodically disseminates this information to the scientific community at large in the form of invited presentations, workshops, and clinical teaching platforms. Through writing, she works to integrate research findings in journal articles, textbooks, and clinical manuals. As a frequent contributor to patient support groups she aspires to assist patients and caregivers as they navigate available treatments and emerging science. Most recently, Dr. Sapienza was selected as Jacksonville's Women of Influence.
