This text brings together the experience and expertise of a group of speech and language therapists who work with, both individually and in groups, children and adults who stutter. The past 2 decades have seen the emergence of what might be termed a British school of stuttering therapy, which has placed increasing emphasis on the need to improve communication skills, encourage a more positive approach to talking and facilitate a change in the stutterera s self--perception. The influence of Kellya s work in Personal Construct psychology is evident throughout the book, and there is a chapter devoted to the application of Kellya s ideas in stuttering therapy. This influence has been importance in shaping our approach to therapy. The book looks at both theoretical and practical aspects of management, including the development of stuttering and early intervention, family therapy, and working with adolescents and adults. It includes some hitherto unpublished work on self--esteem and a final chapter on the issues of under and postgraduate training and service provision.
