In the years prior to publication ‘cures’ for stuttering seemed to appear constantly, but many were of limited value, were poorly evaluated and gave only a temporary alleviation that was not transferred to daily life. More responsible clinicians produced publications expounding one particular approach to therapy but less was available giving a balanced overview which was of practical help to therapists. Originally published in 1983, this book aimed to provide such an overview, with a focus on practical intervention rather than on theory. The need for careful assessment is particularly stressed and also the need for flexibility in the choice of treatment for any one client. Changes in fluency are looked at in relation to the effects they might have on the person’s life as a whole and factors involved in the maintenance of this change are discussed. In addition, adjuncts to speech therapy, such as drugs, hypnosis and various forms of masking are evaluated. Issues of the training of therapists are raised and suggestions made as to the nature of the therapeutic relationship when working with people who stutter.

This textbook presents a new paradigm for understanding the nature and treatment of stuttering based on recent discoveries in neuroscience. The authors illustrate how visible stuttering manifestations are actually a solution to a central problem, acting as a compensatory mechanism for a central involuntary block, rather than a problem in themselves. This book features methods that reduce stuttering by inhibiting this central block, through the use of sensory and motor tools, notably mirror neurons, and shows readers that stuttering is not a condition that can be effortlessly "trained out" of the system or eliminated via simple speech retraining.

The revised edition of A Handbook on Stuttering continues its remarkable role as the authoritative, first-line resource for researchers and clinicians who work in the field of fluency and stuttering. Now in its seventh edition, this unique book goes beyond merely updating the text to include coverage of roughly 1,000 articles related to stuttering research and practice that have been published since 2008. This extended coverage integrates the more traditional body of research with evolving views of stuttering as a multi-factorial, dynamic disorder. Comprehensive, clear, and accurate, this text provides evidence-based, practical information critical to understanding stuttering. By thoroughly examining the intricacies of the disorder, A Handbook on Stuttering, Seventh Edition lays the foundation needed before considering assessment and treatment. New to the Seventh Edition: * A completely reorganized table of contents, including two new chapters. * The deletion of approximately 1,000 non-peer-reviewed references from the previous edition to assure discussion of the highest quality evidence on stuttering. * New content on the development of stuttering across the lifespan and assessment. * Given the Handbook’s historic role as a primary reference for allied professionals, a new chapter that addresses myths and misconceptions about stuttering * Expanded coverage on the role of temperament in childhood stuttering * Expanded coverage of brain-based research, genetics, and treatment findings. * A thoroughly updated chapter on conditions under which stuttering fluctuates * Brief tutorial overviews of critical concepts in genetics, neuroimaging, language analysis and other relevant constructs, to better enable reader appreciation of research findings. * A greater selection of conceptual illustrations of basic concepts and findings than in prior editions * Integrated cross-referencing to content across chapters

A former stutterer, Benson Bobrick here offers his perspective on the condition as well as an interesting history of how physicians have treated it. Stuttering, or stammering (the terms are interchangeable clinically), occurs four times more frequently in males and ranges from mild hesitation in speech to severe disability. Hot irons were applied to stutterers' lips in the Middle Ages, and in the mid-19th century, risky tongue operations were performed in failed attempts to effect a cure. Bobrick discusses famous stutterers Charles Darwin, Henry James, Winston Churchill, and Jimmy Stewart, and he describes the adverse impact of their condition on their lives. In this century, psychological trauma has often been cited as the cause of stuttering, but recent evidence points to a genetic disorder involving a disturbed auditory function. Therapeutic practices differ, but the author credits a voice feedback system with bringing his condition under control.
