Cognitive-behavioral therapy is one approach for helping children change their thoughts and feelings about stuttering. These changes can lead to better therapy outcomes as children develop coping strategies, test their beliefs about listener reactions, and take risks like using speech tools in front of others.
In this 1 hour, 40 minute DVD, clinicians learn why unhelpful thoughts and feelings can interfere with stuttering therapy and then how to help children begin to make changes. Extending the information presented in the Stuttering Foundation's DVD 9900, A Cognitive Behavior Therapy Taster, Lisa Scott, Ph.D., of The Florida State University presents concrete therapy activities for helping children learn to cope with difficult speaking situations, identify unhelpful thoughts, and strategies for trying out new thoughts and behaviors.
Reproducible worksheets and slides included!
