Positive Affirmations

A Positive Affirmation is a carefully formatted statement fostering a belief of a positive mental attitude. Positive statements can change your life for the better as they act as to void out or quiet your negative self-talk. Often, people who stutter, experience ongoing harsh and negative self-talk. Positive affirmations will help counter the negative chatter. The affirmation is present tense, positive, personal and specific. Positive affirmations are encouraged to be said out loud in front of the mirror in the morning, at night, and whenever else is needed. Say each affirmation at least 3 times before moving on to your next affirmation. This will allow the positive message to resonate deep in your mind, body and spirit. You can also create positive statements to say as well.

  1. Hello,

    Thank you for your contribution to the ISAD. My name is Haley Dorrell and I am a first year graduate student studying speech language pathology. I really enjoyed reading over this positive affirmation document. As an aspiring speech pathologist, it is important to learn how to help people who stutter attain their upmost personal construct. Would you say your document relates to personal constructs? If so, how? In addition, would you use this document at the beginning of intervention or throughout intervention? Could positive affirmations be used as an intervention goal? If so how would you incorporate it into your therapy?

    Thank you again, I look forward to your reply!

  2. Hello!

    I am a 2nd year graduate student at the University of Minnesota – Duluth and currently enrolled in an Advanced Fluency course and see fluency clients at local schools in the area. Research is showing more and more that the emotional side to a stutter can have just as big an impact on the PWS quality of life as the phsyical behaviors seen in the PWS. I thought these worksheets were a great resource! Are they intended to be used by SLPs in sessions are seen as more of a homework or additional resource to our fluency clients? Thank you again!
