A new program at The Speech and Stuttering Institute in Toronto is being offered to benefit people who have challenges with speech. The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) program will be facilitated by Occupational Therapists, Todd Tran and Amanda Wu, and attended by Dr. Robert Kroll, Executive Director of The Speech and Stuttering Institute.
The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) program is an 8-week program that combines the practice of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy. MBCT has been clinically proven to be effective in the reduction of stress and anxiety and in the promotion of an overall sense of physical and mental well-being, which can be beneficial for people who have difficulties with speech and stuttering.
