This step-by-step guide is for those working with people who experience disorders of speech, language, voice and fluency. The author evaluates the forms of counselling that are currently practised alongside direct treatment of the disorders themselves, and argues for greater training opportunities and a wider provision of counselling in this field.

Peggy Dalton also explores the effects of communication problems on the person's sense of self, relationships and perceptions of the world. She stresses the need for a greater understanding of the experiences of people whose lives may be severely limited by their communication problems and shows how important it is to find ways of discovering the personal meaning of experience when it is unable to be expressed in words.

`This is a book which I thoroughly recommend for anyone working with people with communication problems or anyone who is interested in that area. Personal Construct Psychology is in itself a model of clear and articulate communication. I have always been daunted by the approach... On reading Peggy Dalton's description, I am much more in tune with the method and its applications and can certainly understand its value particularly with the clients the author writes about... In this book she shows how well she has been able to integrate the psychological and the practical aspects of helping clients to communicate better' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

`I recommend the rich seam of wisdom to be mined in this book' - The Therapist
