McGuire Programme Course Report, August 2015, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Date: 19-22 August 2015
Course Instructor: Dennis Tieke
Course organizer: Frank Loomans

On Wednesday the 19th of August the course in Rotterdam started! We had 12 new students who were a bit shy from the start, but we all know the feeling……….

The McGuire Effect. . . like ripples in a pond!

I feel privileged. How many people get a chance to have a positive effect on so many people and get the opportunity to change peoples lives for the better. To witness the transformation of people who join the programme for the first time, from out of control stutterers to disciplined, controlled confident people is truly amazing. The McGuire Programme really does change the lives of people who stutter and has been doing so for over 20 years.

Friday evening, after the second full day, 20 new students (NS) were asked to describe the course in just one word. ‘Liberating’, ‘Super!’, ‘Heavy’, ‘Chill’, ‘I-opener’, and ‘Inspiring’ were only a couple of the 20 words that went onto a big sheet of paper.
But now let’s turn things around. What word would we, as instructors, use to describe all of them?
