“Great class. Dr. Brout tied together the current understanding of the psychological, social, and physiological processes that underlie misophonia. I’m better positioned to advocate for my twin 12-year olds with misophonia as I seek out professionals to guide us. The course finds a good balance between what we can do on our own at home and what to look for when you start reaching out to counselors, occupational therapists, and audiologists.” – Tony Stallins
“As an adult misophonia sufferer, this was incredibly valuable in terms of providing information on coping strategies, as well as factual information on what is known about misophonia. It provides strategies, tools, and information helpful to me, as well as my family. ” – Elizabeth
“Great workshop. I would recommend to anyone who suffers from Misophonia or is a loved one of someone who does. Dr. Brout did a great job explaining the science behind the mind and body’s misophonic reactions and offered a plethora of concrete actionable coping strategies for proactively preparing for possible trigger situations, responding in the middle of triggering situations, and getting back to “normal” after a trigger. It was also great being able to bounce questions and thoughts off Dr. Brout and other class participants.” – Kyle
“I don’t even know where to start! The fact that Dr Brout herself as an adult understands what we are all going through is so valuable! I really don’t want to be lectured or taught by someone who has no idea of how horrible this disability is. She led the class with humanity and empathy and a sense of humor. I feel like she truly listened to us and provided the most information and help that she could.” – Anonymous
“Dr Jennifer Brout is extremely knowledgable and is a clear communicator. She has a rare depth of knowledge that comes from her own experience as a person with a misophonia and the parent of someone with misophonia. She describes and explains the complexities of misophonia exactly as I experience it, and better than anyone else I’ve encountered in 50 years of seeking information and help with this condition. She knows there are no cures or treatments, but offers advice on coping strategies, and provides clear and detailed explanations of how and why these strategies help. She also offers advice on what doesn’t help. For me, and I suspect for others too, the information and advice on what doesn’t help is incredibly useful and also validating: it will save you time, money and the unnecessary distress of failing to find anything that helps with the condition itself. It will steer you away from ‘treatments’ that can make misophonia worse. Knowing what doesn’t help is as important as learning the coping techniques.” – Ingrid
