Talträning på internet eller Skype!

Hi Hazel,
congrats for your progress. You are really a role model. I’m sure that you will find your free flowing voice with determination and persistence you have. I also started to moderating our online group video chat (using hangouts) on the facebook group for PWS. In those hangouts I have opportunity to talk in front of 7-8 people and even moderate meetings. After 3 meetings, I talk much easier and I experiences flow state often. Words just go out to fulfill my intensions to share my message and emotion of connectedness with audience. It is clear that every new situation in which we expand our comfort zone is not only boosting our self confidence, but is very fun. Now it feels good to feel vibrations and butterflies in stomach from time to time. It is fun.
Talträning på nätet. Bra! Framsteg redan efter tre övningar. Det bådar gott!

”It’s almost a year now, since I ventured out and started giving talks to church/community groups in my local area.  Today, I revisited the church where my first such talk took place –  to give another one, lasting around 20 minutes.  This time round the topic was not directly related to stuttering, although I did give a brief update of my progress, during the last 5 minutes or so, as I knew that those who’d heard me speak the first time round, would be interested to know.”

Hur lång tid behöver man talträna innan det märks tydliga resultat även i normala tal- sammanhang? Personligen har jag saknat och därför efterfrågat under många år resultat av träning i muntlig framställning. Jag kan idag inte erinra mig att jag stött på några sådana uppgifter. Enstaka oprecisa uttalanden om att träningen i muntlig framställning givit resultat,  det är vad jag minns.
Hazel Percy – [neurosemanticsofstuttering] – har emellertid  ökat mitt intresse för talträningsresultat. Hon berättar föredömligt om sina erfarenheter av talträning. Det manar till efterföljd, menar jag. Vi kommer att ha stor nytta av många personers talträningserfarenheter. Jag tror att det kommer att utveckla och effektivisera talträningen. Det kommer även att göra det möjligt att kunna utvärdera olika träningsprogram. Det saknar jag fortfarande  i dag.

Testa om du kan lära något av…?

”…Now, this way of ‘doing speech’ is very new to me and although I am now more aware that my brain can produce speech automatically and do it very well, I am still more used to doing it the wrong way!!!  So – this is where patience and perseverance come in!!!  Training my brain to more and more often, not think about the language and to simply focus on the person I’m talking to or the idea I want to express.

 So, if you are a PWS, I encourage you to experiment and explore these areas for yourselves.  It’s fun to do and it may well lead you further along the road in your own journey of recovery.”
Jag tror att man kan lära sig av varandra. ”Pröva och erfar!”(P.E.)

Stammar man mera på ett sekundärspråk…?

”…First, the planning.  When I don’t plan or think about what words I’m going to say before I say them, and simply bear in mind the idea/thought that I want to express, whilst focussing on whoever I’m talking to, my speech flows so fast and effortlessly – like a runaway train.  I’m never quite sure where it’s going to end up J.  It’s like my brain enters a certain state which allows for automatic speech to happen so easily.  Sometimes, as I stand back, observe and think about how I have just spoken, I end up thinking; “Wow!!! so THIS is how natural automatic speech works!”  I am now so aware that when I take “planning” out of the speaking experience, my brain works in a different way than when I am thinking of what word is coming up next.”

Talet skall fungera automatiskt. Jag har lättare att tänka mig hur det kan fungera, när jag talar svenska som är mitt modersmål. Men hur blir det när man lär sig tala ett sekundärspråk – som engelska exempelvis. Jag börjar nog med att översätta ord för ord från svenska till engelska. Är benägenheten märkbart större att stamma på det främmande språket? Det skulle jag vilja veta.  Kanske är det så att man stammar mera när man skall tala ett främmande språk. Vad säger ni andra? Är det något som ni har lagt märke till?

Vad man kan lära sig själv…

”…Many people (including those who do not stutter) worry about (and adjust their everyday lives in accordance with) what they believe other people think of them. During recent years, I’ve refused to judge myself through someone else’s eyes. Their opinions do not have to become our reality. I feel that people would be far less concerned of what others think about them, if they realised just how infrequently they do so. Most folk are too pre-occupied with their own lives to spare us more than a fleeting thought.

The manner in which we view (behave towards, and speak to) ourselves plays a huge part in determining who we will allow ourselves to be; what we will allow ourselves to do; and how we perceive and live our lives. Our relationship with ourselves is of such prime importance. How we feel on the inside influences how we come across to the outside world.

What other people say about us is merely their opinion – it may not even have any foundation.  What we feel about ourselves is much more important and can have far greater impact upon us than comments that originate from elsewhere.

Today, my levels of self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-efficacy and self-esteem are such that I am totally unconcerned about what others think about the way in which I speak etc. I don’t need their approval. What they think of me is none of MY business.  It is their prerogative to pass judgement – it is my prerogative not to care a hoot. J

Thank you for sharing your thought-provoking post.
Get well soon!
