Effective counseling is an integral part of stuttering therapy, regardless of the age of the client or the severity of the problem. This new book helps the clinician have a better understanding of the counseling aspect of therapy and suggests ways to use it effectively.
Each chapter can stand alone as a resource for the specific population to which it refers; read in its entirety, the book provides a more complete understanding of the overall counseling process.
This book includes chapters by Patricia Zebrowski, Ph.D., University of Iowa; Barry Guitar, Ph.D., University of Vermont; Peter Ramig, Ph.D., University of Colorado-Boulder; and Diane Hill, M.A., Northwestern University. Classic chapters by Drs. Eugene Cooper, Hugo H. Gregory, Joseph Sheehan, Charles Van Riper and Dean Williams are included with introductory comments on their influential contributions to the field of stuttering. 108 pages.
...This book provides a good perspective on counseling both the individual and the family on the process of change. I like Dean Williams' chapter on how to talk to a child about talking.
