The Real Cause of Stammering and its Permanent Cure: a Treatise on Psycho-Analytical Lines

Nature volume 88, pages 407408 (25 January 1912) | Download Citation



MANY theories have been advanced to explain the distressing complaint known as stammering, and the modes of treatment have been equally numerous. The treatment has often fallen into the hands of quacks, who have pursued empirical methods without any insight into the real nature of the affiiction. The author of this book suffered during his early youth and manhood; he put himself under the care of specialists, and he was an inmate of three institutions; but the result was only failure and relapse. He now considers himself to be completely I cured by a method entirely different from that usually 1 followed, and he gives the result of his investigations and experience in this interesting volume.
