SIG 4 Perspectives on Fluency and Fluency Disorders, February 2009, Vol. 19, 5. doi:10.1044/ffd19.1.5
A new year is upon us and with it, the promise of three new issues from Perspectives. The theme for this issue is “Collaborative relationships: Mentor/mentee and faculty/student,” and there are two articles related to it. The August issue will be devoted to Cluttering, with Kathy Scaler Scott acting as guest editor. In November, the theme will be “Collaborative relationships: researcher-researcher, researcher-clinician.”
The current issue provides the reader a potpourri of articles from which to choose. The issue begins with an article from Tellis that is actually a companion article to the one he offered in the November Perspectives. In the current article, he provides a review of information related to the role of culture in assessment and management of African Americans who stutter and presents data related to a new instrument entitled “The Stuttering Inventory for African Americans.” Rentschler and Mosesso follow with an article related to collaborative relationships—specifically, mentoring. The authors discuss mentoring and its applications in the attainment of knowledge and skills in our profession. Parris and Gottwald’s article, also related to the theme of collaborative relationships, discusses the process of helping graduate student clinicians develop counseling skills. They present a developmental model for acquiring counseling skills, including method and applications. In the concluding article of this issue Reitzies and Snyder discuss the continued need for self-help and mutual aid groups for people who stutter and share information related to their unique and exciting Web site, StutterTalk.
