Research & Review Article Summaries

Whilst there is a growing body of research to support our approach to voice-hearing, we’re aware that much of it remains in published journals instead of being shared with the world. Over the next year, the Research Committee will be identifying and summarising journal articles that we think are particularly interesting or useful. Knowledge is power, after all.

This page will be updated as new articles are added.

If you know of any articles that you would like summarising here, please let us know.
