Introduction. 1. The Gender Space: Towards Effective Allyship. 2. The Psychological Space: Therapeutic Alliance. 3. The Vocal Space: Felt Sense and Coaching. 4. The Social Space: Contextual Awareness. 5. Space: Building Communities. Conclusion.

Complementing their previous self-help book for trans people, the same authors have now turned their attention to helping speech and language therapists develop their own skills too, harnessing a wide range of expert knowledge. I had always imagined SLT to be a discipline mainly focused on technique and exercise. What I got from this book, above all, was an understanding that it is a far more holistic process, reaching into the psychological domain and framing identity as the foundation of vocal presentation.
