The Role of Attention in Therapy for Stuttering
In this one-hour presentation, Jane Harley, MSc, Dip.CT (Oxford), Cert/MRCSLT, HCPC, of The Michael Palin Centre for Stammering in London, explores two aspects of attention in relation to young people who stutter and their parents: what we pay attention to as human beings, and how we attend.
Harley first explores some key concepts related to attention, including selective or broad focus of attention, ‘bottom-up’ and ‘top-down’ attention, and attention bias. She then presents examples of clinical interventions which help clients to shift their focus of attention. The concepts of mindfulness, of stepping back from thoughts (defusion), and of self-compassion are discussed.
