The course on Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) for Management of Tinnitus & Decreased Sound Tolerance (DST) will be offered on January 11- 12 and 15 – 17, 2024.
In the past we offered a basic 3 days Tinnitus Retraining Therapy course focused on treatment of tinnitus and 2 days course focused on Decreased Sound Tolerance (DST) (hyperacusis and misophonia). In 2020, due to the situation with COVID, we switched to online format (via Zoom). Following comments from participants we combined these two courses into one, 5 days course, while presenting all materials offered previously during individual courses (but avoiding repetitions and offering more time for interaction).
We are pleased to announce the next online TRT course for management of tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia for professionals planning to treat patients with tinnitus and / or decreased sound tolerance. The course, organized by Jastreboff Hearing Disorders Foundation, Inc., takes 5 days divided into two blocks: Thursday – Friday, two days weekend break and continuing Monday – Wednesday. Classes will start every day at 9:30 am NY time and end at 5:30 pm (with two 15 min coffee breaks and 30 min for lunch). The course consists of lectures, demonstration and practical exercises. It is approved by AAA for 4.0 CEUs and by Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC) for 40 hrs. of credits.
While this course provides enough theoretical and practical information to implement full TRT, it is useful as well for people who want to implement a habituation-based therapy to help tinnitus and DST patients, even without strictly following TRT. No previous experience in treating tinnitus and DST patients is required.
If you are interested in attending the course(s) please send email to Drs Margaret & Pawel Jastreboff (JHDF2008@gmail.com) and we will send you registration form and more specific information about the course. It is our goal to preserve as much as possible the interactive, in person course so the number of participants is limited to facilitate interaction.
