Starting SPEAK OUT!® Therapy Program

What to Expect

You’ll work with a Graduate Student Clinician and a licensed and certified Clinical Educator who supervises the graduate student. Your first session will be about 45 minutes and will be an initial evaluation. After that, you’ll do two 30-minute treatment sessions each week for 4-6 weeks (8-12 sessions). Then you’ll join one of our online SPEAK OUT!® Therapy Program groups weekly and continue with your home practice. We’ll check in with you individually ~1 time a month to make sure you’re staying on track.  

Opportunities to participate in research related to the SPEAK OUT!® Therapy Program are also available.
