Covert Stuttering:

Transitioning from Covert to Overt Vivian Sisskin, M.S., CCC-SLP, BCS-F

Many stutterers who can “pass” as fluent in daily life are desperate to do so despite the emotional cost: Anxiety, dread, and fear of potential stuttering; exhausting “mental gymnastics” to avoid words or remain silent; and poor self-confidence as a communicator. A panel of adults with a covert profile of stuttering will share their experiences, and provide insight into the progress they are making in their personal journey to self-acceptance. Vivian Sisskin will include the basics of a treatment plan that supports stutterers with a covert profile to embrace their identity and confidently say all they want, when they want.

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) for Stuttering Heather Grossman, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BCS-F

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy provides a powerful framework for helping clients identify and restructure the self-destructive core beliefs that contribute to tense, avoidant stuttering behaviors. As PWS come to replace these cognitions with more helpful constructs through individualized action assignments, stuttering tension and avoidance are reduced. Over time, this work brings individuals who stutter closer to how their speech flows in situations where they are most comfortable and unconcerned about stuttering. This workshop will provide an overview of applications of REBT for stuttering for older teens and adults who stutter.
