'Finding buried treasure is how I'd describe reading and viewing this new combination of Dean Williams' legacy -- his essays and a video of his therapy in action.' -- Barry Guitar, Ph.D.
Dean believed that stuttering behavior in school children and adults is the result of their trying not to stutter. They struggle and tense up to avoid repetitions, prolongations, and blocks. However, these behaviors are more under their control than they realize. Dean's approach was to help his clients discover that they could change their behavior and learn to speak more easily. His essays and the video of him helping a young boy speak more easily can teach you how you can use this approach with your own clients. Try it!
