Working With Parents of Children Who Stutter: Supporting Change Using SFBT

Dates Available: 09/20/2021
Registration Deadline: 08/31/2026

Presented by Ali Berquez

In this one-hour presentation, Ali Berquez, BRIEF Cert. SF Practice, RegRCSLT, RegHCPC, of the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering in London, begins with a short overview of the principles of Solution Focused Brief Therapy and then explores how SFBT may be used in therapy with parents of children who stutter.

Shared goal setting using SFBT methods helps clinicians to establish what parents want from therapy and fosters a respectful partnership. SFBT also enables parents to focus on the resources and strengths in the family; to notice what’s going well and build optimism and hope. It fosters a progressive narrative, recognizing that one change in the system will have a ripple effect and lead to wider changes.

This presentation describes how therapists can use the principles of SFBT to explore parents’ expectations from therapy, agree on shared goals and support a process of change through solution focused conversations.
