Clinical Applications of Meta-Therapy in Speech-Language Pathology
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Meta-therapy is an integral pillar of clinical practice; however, the lack of formal training
in this area often makes the concept and application of meta-therapy elusive to
clinicians. The goal of this SIG 3 activity is to disseminate how meta-therapy can be
effectively utilized in the clinical domains of voice disorders, fluency, dysphagia, and
cognitive communication and aphasia.
You will be able to:
- define meta-therapy in the context of a voice evaluation session
- describe two examples of meta-therapy narratives specific to stuttering
- describe how to integrate meta-therapy into dysphagia rehabilitation
- list and describe the five goals of meta-therapy
Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and
report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
