REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy): 101
Speaker: Heather Grossman, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, American Institute for Stuttering
Date: Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019
Time: 7:30-8:45pm ET
Description: Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy provides a powerful framework for helping clients identify and restructure the self-destructive core beliefs that contribute to tense, avoidant stuttering behaviors. As PWS come to replace these cognitions with more helpful constructs through individualized action assignments, stuttering tension and avoidance are reduced. Over time, this work brings individuals who stutter closer to how their speech flows in situations where they are most comfortable and unconcerned about stuttering. This workshop will provide an overview of applications of REBT for stuttering for older teens and adults who stutter.
