The Role of Acceptance, Commitment and Mindfulness in Stuttering Therapy
Presented by Courtney Byrd
Research has demonstrated that through acceptance and commitment therapy persons who stutter can learn a range of skills that mitigate negative thoughts and feelings about stuttering and make meaningful progress towards valued communication goals. In this 1 hour presentation, Courtney Byrd, Ph. D., CCC-SLP, of the University of Texas at Austin facilitates a panel of adults who have completed treatment that incorporated principles of acceptance, commitment and mindfulness. They discuss how their participation lead to reduced avoidance behaviors, increased acceptance of self and stuttering, and effective management of difficult thoughts and feelings through mindfulness skills. Participants provide valuable insight for clinicians and other persons who stutter regarding how use of this approach helped them to move forward in their lives in ways that their thoughts and feelings about their stuttering previously prevented.
