Webinar Description

Misophonia is a condition characterized by experiencing anger in response to perceiving specific stimuli, most often  sounds related to eating and/or repetitive visual movements. While the literature is scarce at the moment, current findings indicate there is a strong psychological components to the etiology of the condition. It is postulated that a combination of perfectionistic traits in classical and operant conditioning give rise to misophonic symptoms. Emanating from this understanding, an acceptance-based cognitive-behavioral intervention called experiential acceptance and sound empathy (EASE) is outlined. A case study will be presented to illustrate the delivery o f EASE.
