CONCLUSIONS &IMPLICATIONS: The working alliance between speech and language therapists and persons who stutter matters. Within the alliance, the level of client-clinician agreement on treatment goals and therapy tasks may be of greater importance than the bond between client and clinician. Further research with greater numbers of participants is warranted. PMID: 30866151 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Developmental stuttering is a speech disorder that occurs in spontaneous communication situations. It is characterized by repetitions, prolongations, or blocks during normal speech. Onset of stuttering is typically between 2 and 5 years of age. Stuttering has a prevalence of around 5% in early childhood, but many children recover spontaneously; thus, the prevalence across the general population is closer to 1% [1]. Adults who stutter (AWS) develop secondary behaviors, such as body and facial tics, and physiological (increased adrenaline and heart rate) and psychological (anxiety and depression) symptoms, associated with this phenomenon.

Chi-square tests of independence were used for comparing categorical variables and independent samples t-tests for comparing continuous variables. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used for determining odds o...

This study used the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scales (DASS) instrument in an online survey format to determine which, if any, lasting psychological stressors were found. Results indicate that the cyberbullied and stuttering group have significantly higher anxiety levels compared to the three additional groups, significantly higher depression levels compared to the group with no cyberbullying and no stuttering, and significantly higher stress levels compared to the groups with stuttering and no cyberbullying and no cyberbullying and no stuttering. This research indicates the effects that cyberbullying can have on mental...

You gaze down through the open window at the sparkling Ionia sea resplendent in the late summer sun. Your taxi weaves itself dexterously down the narrow mountain road from Vrachionas, the highest point on the Greek island of Zakynthos. The sun twinkles and a hundred shades of azure bounce back from the gently lapping waves. High above a Cory’s Shearwater banks and weaves barely beating it’s long brown wings as it scans the turquoise waters for an afternoon snack. It would gladly feast on an octopus like the one you had eaten the night before at the quiet beachfront taverna. But it probably wouldn’t care ...

See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. And in case you were wondering, the proverbial “evil” would be my dormant mental health issues.   Growing up in an upper-class family in Des Moines, Iowa, mental health was an afterthought — sandwiched in between tennis matches, gawky Homecoming dance photos, and college football Saturdays. While I struggled with perfectionism (presaging a later struggle with OCD), my mother glossed over my mental rigidity.   “You just have high standards, Matthew,” she soothingly reassured to me and — perhaps — herself. See no evil, hear no...

Whether you’ve been to therapy or not, you’ve probably heard about cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). It’s a popular type of therapy that many, many therapists use to help their clients treat everything from severe anxiety to debilitating depression.
