Disorders of Voice Use : Psychogenic Conversion Aphonia & Dysphonia

Psychogenic Conversion Aphonia & Dysphonia

Stress and tension can induce a psychological conversion reaction that will manifest itself as hoarseness. Most people are familiar with the “lump in the throat” feeling one gets prior to a highly emotional event. In a conversion dysphonia, this voice problem is taken to the extreme and may result in complete voice loss. Most of the time patients will respond quickly to direct voice therapy with occasional combination psychotherapy.
