In this Meeting, we implement Exposure Therapy from CBT, according to this therapy if anybody do thing which he think its fearful/shameful/difficult/stupid again and again or you can say that he take its exposure again and again, by this Feeling link with that thing(fear/shame/difficult) changes/decrease/neutralized because by doing thing again and again we came to know about the real facts about that thing, we clear our misconceptions, and we leave our behavior of over-estimating things.
At start we introduce our-self with each other and talk about meeting goals and objective. Then we divided into two groups and go shop to shop and talked to sale-man/woman’s with voluntary stuttering like customer. At first stage we start with sale-mans because sale-mans are trained to talk with peoples happily and nicely. After that we go next level, now we go to sale-mans/woman and introduce our-self as Volunteer from NGO named TISA, ask them how you will treat any person who stammer comes to your shop. All sale-mans/woman answers every nicely and they said that they will give time to PWS to speak and when we ask that “will You laugh/make fun” they replied that we will never make fun and laugh not at all.
After that we increase level to next slab, now we started talk with peoples who comes for shopping, we clear all our misconceptions and listened to their views about stammering. Personally i (Anupinder) still have fear to start conversation females, so i got exposure of it also.
Whole meet is exciting and knowledgeable. Thanks TISA for giving us such a helpful platform.
