Exploring Stuttering and Intersectional Identities (Live Interview!)

Intersectional identities overlap, connect, disconnect and can even attempt to cancel each other out. During a live interview at the National Stuttering Association's 39th Annual Conference in Newport Beach California, I talked with multiple people who stutter about their intersectional identities and how these different identities show up in their lives. Interviewees include Christian, an Asian American man who stutters and a film and TV producer, Sam, a multi-racial queer woman who stutters in the mental health field, Alicia, a Latino also in the healthcare field, and Eugene, an African American, Irish and Native American man who stutters. Mentioned in the episode:Maya and the Three (Netflix show)Once Upon A Time In HollywoodThe King’s SpeechBehind Porky Pig’s VoiceToday’s Episode:[3:56] What is Intersectionality?[8:12] TV & Film & Shifting The Stuttering Narrative[8:27] Characters Who Stutter & Examples of Representing Stuttering Right [13:46] Covert Stuttering[17:04] Creating A World Where We Stutter Freely[19:50] Mini Interview with Alicia[21:24] Mini Interview with Sam[24:12] Mini Interview with EugeneConnect with Maya and Proud Stutter: Twitter | Instagram | Website | LinkedIn | Support | Subscribe | E-Newsletter | ShopSUPPORT PROUD STUTTERSupport Proud Stutter By Signing Up on Ko-Fi [Similar to Patreon]OR Make a One-Time DonationSupport this podcast at —

Can 'Flow' Activities Have A Positive Impact on Stuttering?

Is there an activity where you feel 'at one' or ‘in the zone’? There's a term in psychology for this state of being called 'flow'. For this bonus episode, Maya talks to Jayne Devlin, a Community Dance Artist and Co-Artistic Director of Inner Ground Dance Company.Her research interests include exploring how participation in arts, creativity and culture may promote an enhanced sense of wellbeing and connection for individuals.Her works focus on the intersections between dance, health, and wellbeing, specifically relating to aging and neurodegenerative health conditions (Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementias) and Stroke.  Jayne is currently in her final year of an MSc Psychology course at Plymouth University (UK).[4:00 - 7:53] Dancing and ‘Flow State”[7:53 - 9:38] ] Releasing tension and psychology[12:31 - 24:17] Acceptance and Transient moments Mentions:Talk Live A River by Jordan ScottMihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1934 – 2021), a Hungarian American psychologistJayne’s call for interviews for her research: transient wholeness for people who stammerStamma, the British Stammering Association RESOURCESBecome A Member of Proud StutterThe Stuttering CoachProud StutterStutterNavSupport this podcast at —
