CLINICIANS: ARE YOU INTERESTED IN HELPING YOUR STUDENTS IMPLEMENT THEIR STRATEGIES EVERYWHERE?
The integration of cognitive behavioral therapy and speech-language pathology allows for greater outcomes. Anxiety and the fear of stuttering is often the obstacle keeping persons who stutter from generalizing greater fluency and confidence into real-world situations. The course, rich with video examples and experiential exercises, will provide participants with novel and practical therapy ideas they can utilize immediately.
