Description

Now available in a fully revised and updated second edition, this practical manual is a detailed guide to the Palin Parent-Child Interaction Therapy programme (Palin PCI) developed at the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering (MPC). Palin PCI builds on the principle that parents play a critical role in effective therapy and that understanding and managing stammering is a collaborative journey between the child, parent and therapist. This book emphasises a need for open communication about stammering, offering a combination of indirect techniques such as video feedback, interaction strategies and confidence building, along with direct techniques to teach a child what they can do to help themselves.

This second edition:

  • Reflects the most up-to-date research in areas such as neurology, genetics, temperament and the impact of stammering on children and their families
  • Offers photocopiable resources, such as assessment tools, information sheets and therapy handouts, to support the implementation of Palin PCI
  • Focuses on empowerment through building communication confidence in children who stammer and developing knowledge and confidence in their parents

Based on a strong theoretical framework, this book offers a comprehensive understanding of the Palin PCI approach in order to support generalist and specialist speech and language therapists as they develop their knowledge, skills and confidence in working with young children who stammer and their families.
