The European Fluency Specialization

For speech and language therapists who want to specialize in stuttering:

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS COURSE 2012-2013 (download here) 
The ECSF consortium would like to announce that the registration for the 2012-2013 course cycle is open. The ‘ECSF’ is a one-year program, providing both the knowledge and the clinical skills, to assist speech-language therapists in becoming European Fluency Specialists. The program is a well-designed combination of lectures, clinical practice and home assignments. If you are already working as an SLT, this specialization course is compatible with your current workload. Lectures are provided during two intensive weeks, scheduled during the academic year. These modules are combined with follow up sessions in the home country of the participant. The local sessions take place outside the intensive weeks. Preparatory reading and home assignments form an integral part of the course. The specialized clinical training, under supervision of a fluency specialist, can begin after the first intensive week.

What sorts of drugs were these people taking? After a consultation with a very well respected harley street doctor i was given a prescription of Quetiapine twice for anti depression twice daily (Seroquel XL) and Guanfacine once a night. Have to say there hasn't been an improvement in fluency; i still get quite severe blocks. As for suicidal thoughts its more the disparity for me anyways about doing a large amount of research into pharmaceuticals and still no serious improvement yet, fed up of the overt "practice" stuttering of the Maguire program to which I cease to use thesedays. But it is early days with my course of treatment. Has anybody else tried the drugs mentioned?. If you wish to ask me further questions contact me on
