We will be providing accurate, up to date information for misophonia clinicians and providers. Our goal is to educate clinicians interested in providing better care for their misophonia patients.
Things you should know as a clinician:
- Misophonia is real, and it is not psychological (it is neurophysiological).
- A multi-disciplinary approach is important to help patients cope and thrive with misophonia.
- Some websites provide inaccurate information on misophonia, and research is in its infancy.
- We provide a provider network, www.misophoniaproviders.com to connect with other providers (we also accept providers who attend our workshops and prove an understanding of misophonia).
- There is currently no treatment for misophonia, however, there are options to help patients cope with the disorder.
- Misophonia is not psychological, and therefore will not be helped by “exposure therapy”.
These events will provide:
- A basic understanding of misophonia including the brain basis and the highlights of accurate scientific research on misophonia.
- An overview of a multidisiplinary approach and how providers can support patients with misophonia.
- Suggested accommodations for students or employees with misophonia in a classroom environment, that providers can work together with educators to achieve.
- Coping skills for children, teens, and adults with misophonia.
