Emily Foulkes Emily has (almost) completed MA studies in Voice Pedagogy with a specialism in Singing for Health and Well-being as a researcher/practitioner. Her research has mainly been in trauma and mental health. She is a Trauma and Mental Health Practitioner and Trainer and has worked with children, young people and adults with mental health disorders. This includes in schools, with young people excluded from school, an adolescent mental health unit and with adults

The training was going to be held at the Maudsley itself but we are now delighted to offer it online. The training session will offer practical insights into how to work in this sector as well as a toolkits of useful songs, ideas and practice. The Mind and Soul Choir will also be taking part in order for trainees to gain real life experience of this work

With over twenty years of experience between them it proves to be an invaluable day for practitioners hoping to work in this field.
