The Psychology of Stuttering: The Insights of I. Peter Glauber

Winslow R. Hunt, M.D.

PSYCHOANALYSIS HAS BY NOW SO LONG a history, and its literature so vast, that important understandings can become lost in that mass. This is especially the case when a syndrome is relatively uncommon, when the persons suffering from it do not usually seek analysis, and when it is not in an area of current theoretical interest. Stuttering was at one time of considerable concern to psychoanalysis; to my knowledge it has not been so recently. The definitive contributions to date were made during the 1940s and '50s by Dr. I. Peter Glauber, who died in 1966, and whose papers have been collected recently and edited by his widow and published in book form (Glauber, 1982). I was analyzed by Dr. Glauber about 30 years ago. This paper will be a summary and appreciation of his work. It will be a brief memoir of that analysis.

In general, people who write about stuttering seem determined, with striking repetitive concreteness, to find something wrong with the speech apparatus itself, no longer with the tongue, as formerly, but now with the respiratory or neural mechanisms. Yet it is easy to demonstrate that the stutterer has nothing wrong with his speech equipment.
