SUMMARY

The Michael Palin Centre has been involved in running groups for stuttering children and their parents for many years. This paper will explain why and how groups provide such a powerful environment for parents in helping their child who stutters. We will discuss some of the key processes involved in running an effective psycho-educational group for parents. We will also present a blue print for the organisation and running of a six-session weekly group package, as well as the extended two—week intensive programme. Parent satisfaction measures will also be discussed.
