Welcome to my talk, the title which as you can see is "Emotional Contributions to the Causal Matrix of Stuttering". My name is Edward G. Conture. I'm a Professor Emeritus at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America.
My disclosures are twofold today. I have financial relations regarding material from two of my published books; material that will be included in the content of this Henry Stewart Talk. My non-financial disclosure is that I have non-financial relations with information from journal publications that I have co-authored. Information is also included in this talk.
Purpose of my talk today is to briefly discuss the possible role of emotional contributions to the causal matrix of stuttering, especially as those contributions may impact children who stutter. Frequently used acronyms in this talk: will be CWNS for children who do not stutter and CWS for children who do stutter. Thus, our talk today will focus on preschool-age children, the age group when stuttering begins for most individuals who stutter.
The outline is pretty straightforward. I'm gonna briefly cover some background perspectives and information. Then I'm gonna get into what constitutes "cause". And then some basic assumptions I make about stuttering and causes of stuttering. And I'll briefly overview the empirical studies of emotion and childhood stuttering from the last 16 years. And then from that, I will go into a couple of hypotheses that I have developed as a result of that work. And then end with the conclusions.
