Since all of us have constructed social reality in our minds, we have also

constructed biases. This pertains as much to the therapist as to the client. During

stuttering therapy a lot of biases will surface. Some biases such as those about the role of

therapist and client, the role of reading and homework in therapy, and those about the

role of cognition versus skill in speech production in therapy are pertinent in therapy. The

biases on whether the universe was created according to big bang theory or in seven days

bya god, usually do not have direct implication for therapy. If the therapist prepares the

client for the reality that both the therapist and the client will have biases, it is easier to

handle these biases when they appear. When a bias has been identified,one of the best

ways to approach it is to determine whether a) this bias is helpful in reaching the client’s

goals, b) whether it can be tested empirically, c) whether it is logical, and d) whether one

can discuss it with a sense of humor or distancing soas to be able to handle it in a more

detached manner without getting into a confrontation.
