The cause: emotional tension
The moment you start talking is a source of great tension for a stammerer. This tension is ignored by those who do not have the disorder and cannot understand it. Scheider’s thesis is that emotional stress causes stammering. The psychological origin of stammering is also supported by Martin Schwartz in “ Stuttering Defeat “
The French speech therapist Suzanne Borrell- Maisonner, considered one of the greatest stuttering therapists, says that emotional weakness is the typical characteristic of stutterers. The causes that lead a person to stutter are therefore attributable to the apprehension of an emotional person.
