Survey: the Effects of Compassion and Self Criticism on Stuttering

hull university

Researchers at the University of Hull in Hull, United Kingdom are investigating the effects of self-criticism and compassion on stammering and distress. They are asking for people who stutter to respond to a survey to help them with the research. See the survey here or download the survey here.

The purpose of the study is to develop a greater understanding of what might influence the relationship that exists between stammering and distress. There has been lots of research that has focused on how stammering can result in greater levels of anxiety, depression and other mental health difficulties within the stammering population. However, factors that might influence this relationship have not been explored in great depth. As such, current stammering treatment that focuses on the psychological impacts of stammering may not always be as effective as one would hope.
