Although counseling is an integral component of stuttering therapy, many speech-language pathologists have received little to no formal counseling training. The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of various counseling theories, principles, and techniques that can be integrated into stuttering therapy. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of how to practice theory-driven counseling in order to help children and adults who stutter manage negative or undesired life experiences associated with their stuttering. An overview of stuttering treatment for older children and adults will also be provided. This course is part of a series of webinars on the topic of stuttering. To register for other courses in the series, please visit: Stuttering Virtual Conference.
