5-day course @thepalincentre

This course aims to equip therapists with the knowledge and skills required to confidently assess and provide evidence-based therapy for children who stammer from preschool to secondary school age.

Who is this suitable for?
Qualified speech and language therapists.

What’s in it for participants:

  • A chance to immerse yourself in stammering therapy for a week and to really build your confidence in working with children who stammer across the age-range.
  • Combining the Palin PCI training with specific workshops on psychological approaches, Family Communication Skills Therapy and direct speech management provides a thorough overview of ways of working with children who stammer.
  • Opportunities to learn and practice transferable therapeutic and counselling skills e.g. aspects of Solution Focused Brief Therapy, CBT video reflection and collaborative working with families.
  • Real-life case discussions, video observation and opportunities to hone your clinical reasoning and decision making skills.
  • A chance to reflect on how to integrate the knowledge and skills learned into your everyday practice and model of service delivery.
