Workshop’s abstract: 

The etiology of stuttering is determined by a complex interaction of predisposing, precipitating, and persisting factors. Analogous, therapeutic intervention should be aimed at all of these elements. A cognitive behavioral approach offers a valid methodological framework for addressing overt stuttering behaviors, cognitive, and emotional processes. During this workshop we will present an overall cognitive behavioral framework, allowing the audience to gain in depth insight in why and how certain intervention strategies work, we will focus on the different intervention procedures, including how they should be selected to provide the client with an individually tailored treatment approach.
