In medicine, psychosocial aspects of diseases are considered as highly important. In speech therapy, these aspects have a high significance in voice therapy, especially in functional dysphonia, as psychosocial aspects are supposed to provoke and/or to maintain these kinds of voice disorders. Based on a literature research, the present thesis shows the connections between functional dysphonia and psychosocial aspects. On the basis of these findings, the thesis aims to find answers, on how speech therapists should consider psychosocial aspects in voice therapy, and where they should professionally draw the line to psychotherapy and/or psychology. As a result, the thesis presents different opinions of authors in the field of voice and voice therapy, which shows (future) speech therapists options on how to adress psychosocial aspects in a therapeutical context. Moreover, these different opinions of authors may provoke reflecting one’s own counseling practice in voice therapy. At the end of the paper, a proposal for further research is presented.
