Students and clinicians discover the adventure of fluency disorder diagnosis and treatment in a text that emphasizes the excitement of the assessment-treatment process. Clinical Decision Making in Fluency Disorders details counseling as a central aspect of fluency disorders and looks at the facilitation of therapeutic chance. Dealing with client motivation and resistance and matching treatment strategies to client stages of change are other clinical qualities outlined. Emphasis is given to looking at the characteristics of effective clinicians, with a unique nod given to humor as an important variable in the communication disorder treatment process. Specific examples of the decision making process are presented in story form. TEXTBOOK
