This new book contains a definitive description and justification for the Jastreboff Neurophysiological model of tinnitus. The treatment for tinnitus developed by the authors from the model, Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) has already proved to be the most effective and most widely practiced treatment for tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance (hyperacusis and misophonia). The authors describe in detail the essentials of TRT and review the research literature justifying their claims, together with a critique of other current therapeutic practices.
The discovery by Jastreboff in the 1980s of the mechanisms by which tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance occur, has lead to this new and effective treatment. Audiologists, ENTs, psychologists and counselors around the world currently practice this technique, with success rates around 80%. The book is written for professionals, but is accessible to patients, who will be able to use the knowledge, together with their therapist, to achieve relief. There is an extensive glossary, and margin notes to help identify the most important and salient elements in the text.

Two books on Tinnitus Retraining Therapy
by Henry, Trune, Robb and Jastreboff



Especially useful for professionals using TRT



Although tinnitus is a common international problem, often clinicians find they are unsure of how to treat their tinnitus patients. These two volumes are the first clinical resources for clinicians to provide exact procedures for clinical administration of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). The first volume (Clinical Guidelines) is suitable both for clinicians who conduct TRT and as a textbook for academic training programs. The second volume (Patient Counseling Guide)-designed to be used one-on-one with tinnitus (and hyperacusis) patients-is a double-sided resource with information for the clinician on one side and patient information on the other. Anyone who is interested in providing tinnitus management with TRT will find this pair of books immensely useful, practical, and resourceful.
