JOSEPH G. SHEEHAN’S MESSAGE TO A STUTTERER

“Joseph G. Sheehan’s Message to a Stutterer” (34 min) For 35 years, Dr. Joseph G. Sheehan ran the stuttering clinic at the University of California, Los Angeles, earning himself a reputation as a world-renowned speech pathologist. In footage culled from decades of research, lectures, and appearances, he speaks with wit, wisdom, and compassion to his professional peers, to the public, and especially to stutterers like himself.

====================
Streaming to online screens and smartphones for the first time, two thought-provoking documentaries from award-winning filmmaker Allan Holzman, who is a stutterer. “Joseph G. Sheehan’s Message to a Stutterer” (35 minutes) highlights pioneering work in speech-language pathology by UCLA professor of psychology Dr. Joseph G. Sheehan, who, along with his wife, Vivian Sheehan, M.A. (featured in the second documentary, “No Words to Say”) founded a unique group therapy for adult stutterers. Dr. Sheehan was himself a severe stutterer. The second film, “No Words to Say” follows stutterers in the UCLA clinic of the 1980’s led by speech-language-hearing pathologist Vivian Sheehan as they reveal their innermost feelings about life as stutterers while attempting a bold new approach to facing their worst fear in life: speaking.

TWO DOCS:

For award-winning filmmaker Allan Holzman, what began as a personal exploration of his own stuttering ultimately coalesced into two documentaries profiling the pioneering work and methods of Dr. Joseph G. Sheehan and his wife, speech-language pathologist Vivian Sheehan, M.A., SLP-CCC. Both “No Words to Say” and “Joseph G. Sheehan’s Message to a Stutterer” have been viewed by thousands of speech therapists, students, and stutterers the world over and are part of the curricula of many leading universities.

[these films] should be required viewing at some point in the education of every speech-language pathology major in the discipline. Practitioners will find [them] useful for orienting adolescent and adult stutterers and their loved-ones. [They] should be in every library of every support group for adult stutterers. The messages conveyed are timeless.
