Evidence-Based Treatment of Stuttering: Empirical Bases and Clinical Applications

By Anne K. Bothe | Go to book overview

Preface

This book is the result of a 2002 University of Georgia “State of the Art Conference” about the evidence-based treatment of stuttering. Administered by the office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the State of the Art Conferences program allows University of Georgia faculty to organize specialized meetings of persons with international expertise in a specific area. The prescribed format requires all participants to present relatively long original works, with substantial time allowed for the group's thoughtful discussion after each presentation. In accordance with these guidelines, the authors of these chapters were originally invited to present and discuss current data and issues related to the data-based treatment of stuttering. This topic was defined as including evidence about stuttering, evidence about stuttering treatment, and discussions of how that evidence should guide our continuing research and guide our practice, with specific presentation topics determined by the presenters on the basis of their own current work or interests. Thus, these chapters are intended to provide one of the many possible samples of “state of the art” information to researchers, clinicians, and students who are interested in developing, identifying, or using the best possible evidence-based treatments for stuttering.

It is interesting to note, however, that the phrase evidence-based practice, which has come into use recently as an extension of evidence-based medicine (see chap. 1, this volume), was not an explicit part of the original invitations to the conference presenters. Terminology from evidence-based medicine is becoming very popular and is also becoming rather predictably controversial; the terms have been interpreted as euphemisms for such negative
