Most clinicians have little experience with tinnitus treatments, and are unsure of how to help a patient suffering from the condition. Filling a significant gap in literature, this book offers a variety of in-depth protocols to treat tinnitus. Beginning with a review of several neurophysiological and psychological models of tinnitus, the book goes on to cover evaluation tools; counseling options and methods; treatment with hearing aids, wearable and non-wearable noise generators, and music; tinnitus-related insomnia; quality-of-life issues; and much more. Highly experienced clinicians give you the practical strategies to apply such therapeutic modalities as cognitive-behavioral therapy, individual and group sessions, sound therapy, habituation therapy, and narrative therapy. You will also find sample handouts to allow for effective communication with patients. With key clinical information for implementing all current therapies, this text is an essential professional tool for audiologists, psychologists, and other practitioners involved in managing otologic disorders.

The quintessential clinical guide for audiologists on tinnitus and hyperacusis patient management
Since publication of the first edition in 2005, new developments have impacted the treatment paradigm for tinnitus, such as sensory meditation and mindfulness. Tinnitus Treatment: Clinical Protocols, Second Edition, by world-renowned tinnitus experts and distinguished authors Richard S. Tyler and Ann Perreau provides comprehensive background information, up-to-date strategies, essential tools, and online supplementary materials grounded in years of clinical experience and research. It fills a gap in graduate education and available materials to empower audiologists to effectively treat patients suffering from bothersome to severely debilitating symptoms associated with tinnitus or hyperacusis.
The textbook includes 15 chapters, starting with three chapters on tinnitus models, treatment approaches, and self-treatment options. The next three chapters summarize counseling approaches for audiologists and psychologists, including introduction of the three-track psychological counseling program for managing tinnitus. Chapters 7 and 8 discuss the use of hearing aids in patients with hearing loss-related tinnitus and sound therapy using wearable devices. Chapter 9 covers smartphone apps for tinnitus assessment, management, and education and wellness, including discussion of limitations. The last six chapters provide guidance on tinnitus management topics including treating children, implementing outcome measures, hyperacusis treatment, and future directions.
New relaxation/distraction tactics including meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, biofeedback, progressive muscle relaxation, art and music therapy, exercise, and exploration of new hobbies
Treatment guidance for patients with tinnitus associated with Meniere's disease, vestibular schwannoma, unilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss, and middle ear myoclonus
Discussion and research-based evidence covering Internet-delivered self-help treatment strategies
New supplemental videos, brochures, handouts, questionnaires, and datasheets enhance knowledge, scope of practice, and incorporation of effective approaches into clinical practice
This is a must-have resource for every audiology student and advanced courses, as well as essential reading for all audiologists who feel underprepared in managing tinnitus and/or hyperacusis.
