The Joint World Congress will be characterized by teachers of international renown. Consider, for example, "Demonstrations of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy of Stuttering (REBTS) Teletherapy Techniques With Extensive Audience Participation".

Doctors Heather Grossman and Gunars Neiders will show how Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy of Stuttering (REBTS) is effectively integrated with teletherapy. The audience will participate in interactive REBTS Self-Help Form utilization, the Sound/Video On-Off Exercise, the use of Screen Sharing to explain the finer points in the electronic media (or e copy of a book), and in-between session homework assignment creation via e-mail, and recording and reviewing of a teletherapy session. The techniques will introduce and clarify the basics of REBT theory and practice. Various definitions and therapy strategies of REBTS will be explored. Conclusions from a pilot study will be included in discussions.

Here's yet another presentation that makes attending the Joint World Congress so worthwhile: "Voices of Experience – perspectives on therapy type and need" will be presented by Mark Irwin, John Steggles and Geoff Johnston.

This panel of distinguished presenters represents the expertise and opinions of 3 lifetimes of lived stuttering experience of people deeply familiar with the array of international perspectives. Presented in a Q & A style, the moderator will seek the panelists’ thoughts on many of the questions that puzzle professional and consumer alike. Topics like treatment, relapse, the psychological side of stuttering, to treat or not to treat, living with stuttering, stuttering in the aged population, role of support groups, accept vs. non-acceptance, the future of stuttering treatment and much much more. The workshop will encourage audience questions and discussion.
