irresponsible marketing by Dr Brenda Carey. She has now changed her marketing strategy from a misleading "Stop Stuttering with ..." to a reasonable and factual "Stuttering Specialist Dr Brenda Carey": check out the website. She and her team are definitely stuttering specialists. I might not agree with everything they do, but, if you lived next door to their practise, I would not hesitate to suggest that you take your child to them.
Interestingly, she changed the text from "..what options are available to stop stuttering" to "what evidence based treatments are available to reduce your stuttering and improve your communication." I would have added "reduce your fears" or "improve your well-being".
Unfortunately, she also shows her "evidence-based treatment" obsession. No surprise here, given that she has been indoctrinated during her PhD in the Onslow and Packman environment. Again, evidence-based practise is in-principle a good idea, but very difficult to implement in clinical practise, especially for stuttering and in the hands of clinicians who lack a rigorous training in science and statistics. Moreover, evidence-based practise requires solid evidence from well-done trials and the disclosure of all evidence. And here she is misrepresenting evidence, something she has not addressed yet. But that's for a another post!
To all people who stutter and those who strive for high ethical standards in marketing therapies, public pressure works as this case shows. Get out there, and loudly express your opinion! Don't let others tell you what you have to accept.
