                        Working with people who stutter: A Framework For A Cognitive Behavioral Treatment Perpective

Description:   The workshop is aimed at speech, language therapists with already some basic knowledge on stuttering. During the 4 parts of the workshop, fluency treatment in different age ranges will be discussed, i.e. preschoolers, school-age children, and adolescents/adults. Participants are encouraged to bring in examples of their own cases throughout different parts of the workshop. Although initially some theoretical frameworks will be discussed, the focus lies primarily on gaining practical skills in working with people who stutter. This is done through the use of videos and role play exercises.

Detailed planning

Phenomenology of stuttering; current insights in the onset, development and exacerbation

of stuttering; framework for a cognitive behavioral treatment perspective.

These 2 days will lay the foundation for the following days during which we will focus on

different age ranges, i.e. preschool and school-age children, and adolescents/adults who

stutter. During every block, participants will have the opportunity to share and discuss their own clients.

Learning outcomes:

-Participants have increased insight in the recent models of stuttering etiology and development and its clinical applicability.

-Participants have increased insight in evidence-based practice, the role of common factors, and their role as a therapist.

-Participants know how and are trained to optimize their treatment effectivity.

-Participants are trained in clinical case formulation, functional and meaning analyses and are encouraged to apply it to their own cases.
