Recent Workshops and Presentations
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) decreases tinnitus distress and improves the quality of life for those suffering from persistent tinnitus. Neurotherapy and other types of biofeedback training help you learn to regulate limbic system and autonomic nervous system responses so that you can shift focus and learn to ignore tinnitus. In combination, these two complimentary approaches can result in a gradual decrease in perception of tinnitus sounds over time. Take a look at Managing Tinnitus with CBT and Neurotherapy
from the August 1, 2015 meeting of the Atlanta Tinnitus Support Group for more information about how CBT and neurotherapy can help tinnitus, hyperacusis, and misophonia.
