Many therapies emphasize the importance of finding the deep-rooted psychological cause that triggered stuttering and by solving this inner conflict, stuttering disappears automatically. In Lee’s book, it’s stated that we don’t really have to deal with this cause, just do the required work and stuttering can be defeated.
What’s you opinion about it? Why it isn’t necessary to solve the original trauma/cause for a permanent cure? And what if that cause manifests later in another form of problem (instead of stuttering) if we don’t deal with it directly?November 2, 2020 at 11:47 am #28096Leah AreffModerator
You are implying that trauma caused your stutter in the first place? How do you know that your stutter occurred due to trauma?
There is no deep-rooted psychological cause that triggered stuttering. You stuttered (for whatever reason, again, this is irrelevant), your brain created a stuttering habit. You now need to form a fluency habit. Plain and simple.
It has nothing to do with inner conflict and turmoil. I have met many people who have so many issues in their life, yet they do not stutter. There are almost 8 billion people in the world and only 1% of them stutter. So 99% of people do not have inner conflict?November 2, 2020 at 2:39 pm #28100GáborParticipant
Yes, you’re right, that’s only an assumption that a trauma caused stuttering.November 4, 2020 at 9:18 am #28119Leah AreffModerator
Even if a traumatic experience was the cause of stuttering, it is definitely not the reason that we continue to stutter. I know this because stuttering is a choice, so you can have all the issues in the world and still choose not to stutter going forward. Traumatic experiences cannot force us to stutter.
Dealing with your issues is a worthy goal, but it is not necessary to self-cure. When we play the victim and blame our circumstances and our past for our stuttering, we will always have an excuse to stutter. People do not want to own up to the fact that they can stop stuttering anytime that they choose to because it is too painful for them to admit that they are not willing to work hard enough and clearly do not want it badly enough. It is too painful for them to admit that there are people out there (like us) who have cured and are working towards curing every single day. No, it is much easier for them to blame traumatic experiences for it and claim that stuttering is out of their control.
