We can now confirm that our next keynote speaker for One World, Many Voices: Science and Community in Hiroshima, Japan July 2018 will be Dr. Koichi Mori, M.D., Ph. D.

Dr. Mori’s keynote speech will focus on the use of cognitive behavioral therapy with adults and adolescents who stutter in a group therapy setting. This interesting keynote will offer an insight into therapy options for people who stutter in Japan, and will increase awareness of the use of CBT with people who stutter both in Japan and internationally. We anticipate this will lead to interesting debate between delegates of all nationalities regarding the availability of different approaches to living with stuttering across the globe and inspire new ways of thinking about, working and living with stuttering in people’s own lives.

More information about Dr. Mori, and about the Joint World Congress, can be found on our website at www.jointworldcongress.org

Continuing the planning for the Joint World Congress, we are delighted to announce a keynote panel, discussing the conceptualization of cluttering. The panel will be led by Dr. Florence Myers (Adelphi University, Garden City, New York), who has devoted the past thirty years toward an understanding of cluttering and its relation to stuttering.

Also featuring on the panel will be Dr. Charley Adams and Dr. Susanne Cook. Charley is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina, where he has taught graduate coursework on fluency disorders since 2000.

Dr. Susanne Cook is a speech-language pathologist from Germany, who has specialized in fluency disorders since 1995. She is a licensed stuttering therapist (Interdisciplinary Association for Stuttering Therapists) and has been running an intensive therapy summer program for children and adolescents who stutter for ten years.
