The Clinical Utility of Self-Disclosure and Voluntary Stuttering - Video plus CEU Assessment

In this 90 minute presentation, Courtney Byrd, Ph. D., CCC-SLP, of the University of Texas at Austin discusses the positive impact of self-disclosure and voluntary stuttering in positively altering listener perceptions. Dr. Byrd presents a review of a series of recently published studies that demonstrate that voluntary stuttering and self-disclosure are among the most beneficial therapy strategies, not strictly from the perspective of clinicians, but more importantly from the perspective of persons who stutter. She discusses and demonstrates that these strategies are only effective when used in distinct ways.

This course is offered for 0.15 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area).
