This issue contains our first “Point-Counterpoint” exchange. While such a forum can serve to offer opposing views, and possibly create antagonisms, the articles presented here seem to complement each other well. In his article, “Research Based Stuttering Therapy,” Mark Power, a stuttering specialist in private practice discusses the need for clinical practice decisions to be grounded in the research. He stresses the importance of treatment efficacy research and discusses how to use the research to evaluate the available treatment programs. In the “counterpoint” article, Donna Cooperman and Sr. Charlene Bloom, professors at the College of Saint Rose, recognize how critical it is to incorporate the multiple dimensions involved in stuttering. While their work is certainly grounded in the research, they are using a different angle from which to view the research: the vast world of counseling. On the surface, it may seem these two articles are quite different; however, I imagine the authors would certainly recognize the significance of each other’s contribution.
