This is a comprehensive resource book for treating adults who stammer. Completely revised and updated to take account of current practice, this new edition draws together the latest information on therapy for adults along with practical examples of exercises, tasks and activities that can be used for both individual and group programmes. With new chapters and therapy ideas, this is an extremely useful resource for all speech & language therapists and students working with adults who stammer. This useful resource seeks to explain techniques for treating people who stammer and the rationale for their use. This volume forms a catalogue of treatment options from which clinicians may choose to use all of the techniques or pick out particular sections according to their clients' special requirements. The first edition of this book proved to be a very useful tool for speech and language professionals, and this new edition has come about largely because clinicians, speech and language therapists and teachers have requested it. With the inclusion of 50 photocopiable handouts and the presentation of the chapters in the order they would use with their own group programmes, the authors set out the principles of therapy in such a way that the treatment techniques fit into a clear management approach.
