Hi Dr. Shapiro - I really enjoyed your article and found the three personal stories that you shared to be a great inspiration for all who stutter, have stuttered, as well as us as professionals. At one point in your article, I saw that you had mentioned that George was enrolled in both group and individual therapy sessions. I looked back through some previous questions that you have answered from other readers as well and noticed that the other two individuals were also enrolled in both group and individual sessions. What would a typical group therapy session consist of? Can you provide some examples of activities and any insight as to how I may prepare for an effective group session? In my mind, I picture a lot of counseling amongst group members; however, I am sure that you devised numerous ways to treat and educate the group members on their stuttering.
