Small group therapy announcement

This format involves a five-week block of once-a-week therapy sessions, of 1.5 hours in duration. Therapy is a combination of group discussion and one-one-one therapy, carried out by graduate students in Speech Language Pathology, under the direct supervision of Caroline Bredeson, SLP, coordinator of the Stuttering Treatment Clinic at Perley-Rideau. In addition to being more economically appealing (sessions are $70 each or five for $350), group therapy has been shown to be more effective than individual therapy in generalizing speaking techniques and in managing the negative thoughts and emotions that often interfere with easy communication for those who stutter. Treatment may be offered in English or French, depending on the needs of the participants.
Dates: February 28th to March 27th, 2020. Weekly on Thursday evening.
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Interprofessional Clinic
1750 Russell Rd
