amanda copesAmanda Copes, director of the Speech & Hearing Clinic (seated in photo), was one of only 20 speech pathologists chosen to attend an intensive workshop on stuttering therapy. Copes participated in the workshop, “Using Cognitive Approaches to Working with People Who Stutter,” in Boston, from June 25-29. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Stuttering Foundation and Boston University.

“This intensive workshop introduced us to the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, both which help us as clinicians tap into recognizing our clients as the ‘experts’ in their communication, even if we as speech-language pathologists are considered the ‘communication specialists’,” Copes said. “A message that I received about working with families of children who stutter that can be transferrable to many aspects of any one person’s holistic life is to learn to see what’s right – focus on the positive, acknowledge it and use it as a foundation to build upon.”
