Stuttering: Treatment Strategies for Affective and Behavioral Roadblocks
Many individuals who stutter can learn fairly quickly,
often in just a few sessions, how to produce fluent speech. However, the
relapse rate is common, and people who stutter frequently complain of being
unable to maintain the desired level of fluency once they leave the clinic. In
this course, Lourdes Ramos-Heinrichs will present three strategies that SLPs
can use when working with adolescents and adults who stutter to help these
clients sustain desired levels of fluency and carry over the fluent speech to
everyday speaking situations and when conversing with diverse groups. The course
will introduce and discuss the use of clinical self-reports as well as
techniques from solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy
to help address the affective and behavioral challenges that may interfere with
clients’ fluency. You’ll walk away with practical strategies to implement in
your clinical practice.
After completing this session, you will be able to:
- explain how self-reports can be used to help individuals who stutter to address their affective and behavioral roadblocks
- describe the principles of solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy
- apply new techniques to help individuals who stutter relate to and manage internal and emotional struggles
