This book brings the richness of contemporary stammering therapy for young people and adults into the public domain.

This book brings the richness of contemporary stammering therapy for young people and adults into
the public domain. By including many innovative and previously undocumented approaches, it broadens
the discourse and extends the boundaries of thinking about stammering theory. A key and unique
aspect of the book is that the majority of chapters will be co-authored by therapists and clients in order
to deepen our knowledge of therapy in line with recent trends in narrative-based practice.

Chapters explore the following therapy approaches:

-- Cognitive behaviour therapy

-- The City Lit integrated approach to stammering therapy

-- 1:1 therapy revisited

-- Interiorized stammering therapy

-- Self-advocacy

-- Working with teenagers in groups

-- Narrative therapy

-- Mindfulness and stammering

-- Acceptance and commitment therapy

-- Neuro-linguistic programming

-- Feelings and stammering

-- Stammering, imagework and self-esteem
