Dr. Palasik is a world renowned stuttering specialist. He is the director of the Mindfulness ACT Social Cognition and Stuttering Lab (MASS Lab). This lab focuses on the use of mindfulness practices along with a psychotherapy approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with people who stutter. ACT is used to address cognitive behaviors (thoughts) related to stuttering in order to create psychological flexibility. It combines the use of meditation (mindfulness) activities to increase a client’s awareness and willingness to connect with all thoughts and language. His groundbreaking documentary film “When I Stutter” will be shown and reveals the profound emotional impact that stuttering has had on a diverse group of individuals!
