Date: July 7, 2022
Time: 11am-12:30pm ET (4.00 – 5.30pm GMT)
Description: This talk will start by exploring how to help school-aged children who stutter, and their parents, think about what they want from therapy by drawing on Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). It will include ways to talk about progress by drawing attention to a client’s strengths and resources, and what they notice over time. Themes of difference, being unique, becoming more open, and developing self-advocacy skills will be discussed. The webinar will include discussion of one client’s journey with video examples.
