What a treasure to have so many great minds ready and willing to respond…thank you!
As a clinical professor, speech-language pathologist, and family member of persons who stutter, I’ve been on a journey to understand the experience of stuttering. The counseling piece has been particularly intriguing and approaches such as CBT, motivational interviewing, Egan’s skilled helper model, etc. Recently I read about someone’s perception of therapists who are “in the business of readjusting your internal dialogue, not accepting what you say when you give them reasoning as to why you feel the way you do.” This individual felt therapy was actually “dehumanizing.” This person’s experience was not related to stuttering therapy, but since we are concerned with a person’s internal dialogue and understand how it can often affect decisions and shape behaviors, I wonder if you all have experienced counseling “backfiring” and how you responded?
