Event description
Join our Speaker Series event! Theme: Concealment as it relates to the stuttering experience. Speaker: Hope Gerlach-Houck

About this event

Hope Gerlach-Houck is an assistant professor at Western Michigan University. Her research focuses on how context shapes the ways in which people cope with stuttering and how those different ways of coping affect their psychosocial wellbeing. She is particularly interested in exploring relationships between stigma, concealment of stuttering, and wellbeing

We would like those attending to consider the following questions before the meeting and we anticipate a great discussion. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Check out Hope's article titled “The Paradox of Concealment.” https://www.redefiningstammering.co.uk/the-paradox-of-concealing-stuttering/

The questions to consider for the meeting are the following

  • How did I learn to hide stuttering?
  • What are the different ways I hide stuttering?
  • When I hide or downplay stuttering, what am I hoping will happen? What am I hoping won’t happen?
  • Do I want to live more openly with stuttering? What are small steps I could take to begin?
  • What are other ways I can reclaim power in social environments that feel hostile?
