Webinar – Dropping the “C” in Covert Stuttering at Work
September 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Recent studies in the United States point out that fully 61% of employees hide something about themselves in the workplace. This concealment is often due to fear of judgement, shame and/or a desire to conform and “fit in” at work. People who stutter often try to be as covert as possible at work, so they are not exposed and labeled as less intelligent, anxious or emotionally unsound, all of which we know are myths about stuttering. Stuttering covertly denies opportunity to bring one’s full self to work, which is needed for relationship building, creativity, team work and innovation.
Join Pamela Mertz, PWS and Charley Adams, PhD, SLP-CCC for our free online webinar – Dropping the “C” in Covert Stuttering at Work – as we discuss the benefits of dropping covert behaviors at work and offer some suggestions to transition from covert to overt stuttering.
