What is it about?

The current investigation examined the prevalence of self-reported psychopathology in individuals who stutter, and looked at relationships between well established affective, behavioral and cognitive experiences of stuttering and psychological distress.

Why is it important?

Findings further illuminate the true nature of stuttering, its psychosocial concomitants, and how these different variables relate to one another. The hierarchy of effects which flow from the study highlight important group trends amongst people who stutter, having clinical implications.


This research builds upon years of prior investigations which have sought to more clearly define the "under the surface" variables of stuttering. It is my hope these data can lead us toward a better understanding of stuttering and effective treatment paths for those who stutter, with an emphasis on alleviating negative mental health symptoms.
