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:
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.

In this volume, the author details a completely new approach to treating this debilitating condition. It both explains the structure of stuttering and blocking and provides cognitive tools for gaining more fluency.
Designed for clinicians and students working with teenagers and adults who stammer, this flexible and practical book embeds an ethos of reflection and adaptation.
Bob Bodenhamer explains that blocking results from the thinking (cognition) of the stammerer as he or she associates speaking with a lot of fear and anxiety about stammering.
This fully revised and updated eighth edition (2021) of Peter Westwood’s book offers practical advice and strategies for meeting the challenge of inclusive teaching.
This edition provides a jargon-free and practical explanation of a theory and method of counselling which can be used in any therapeutic relationship.
The book shows that play is an essential part of children’s healthy development and many children ‘at risk’ are those who are unable to play.
This title aims to enable children from an early age to recognise and resist unhealthy pressures, maintain body esteem, and know how to make skilled choices that can ensure their health and wellbeing.
