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.
Georgia licensed and nationally certified speech-language pathologist since 1992, Tim Mackesey, CCC-SLP, BRSFD/Mentor specializes in the evaluation and treatment of fluency disorders. As a severe stutterer for more than 20 years, he is well aware of the milestones it takes to achieve more fluent speech.
He has a full-time practice in Atlanta, Georgia dedicated to stuttering and is a Board-Certified Specialist in Fluency Disorders and a specialist Mentor per ASHA. He has taught the graduate-level fluency Disorders course at Georgia State University and is a Master Practitioner of NLP and Neurosemantics who integrates leading-edge cognitive behavioral therapy into stuttering therapy.
