Misophonia Assessment and Management

Although misophonia appears to be very similar for everyone, there are large differences from person to person.  An assessment includes determining your particular misophonic reflex, which can determine options for treatment and management.  Also, some individuals are a Highly Sensitive Person.  In this case, it is not just the misophonic reflex that must be managed.  The person must also contend with a biological make-up which responds to all kinds of stimuli in the environment.

Based on the assessment, there are several treatment and management techniques that reduce the impact of misophonia on a person’s life and minimizes picking up new triggers.   Which ones will help you depend on your personal misophonia and your preferences.  Tom Dozier can help you understand the options and which ones will work best for you.  Tom can also help you use the available technology to reduce the impact on misophonia on your life.

Assessment and Management and Relaxaton Training is usually be covered in a 80 minute session. The cost for this is $150.  (Note that Tom has a reduce fee available. Contact him for more information.)

Relaxation Training and Counterconditioning Treatment

This is a powerful and broadly effective treatment for misophonia. What would you give to have misophonia greatly reduced or even eliminated from your life. The first step is to conduct relaxation training. This is a learned physical skill that can only be learned through practice, just as you would learn to play a sport. To be good at a sport it takes, practice, practice, and more practice. The same is tru with developing the skill of relaxing your muscles on demand. The second step is to apply your newly developed muscle relaxation skill in real world situations when there are triggers. This is a form of counterconditioning. Ther are other counterconditioning exercises that can be part of the treatment if faster and more complete eliminateion of triggers.

Wouldl you like to reduce your misophonia severity by 70-80% and then continue to slowly reduce it. This is possible and expected with relaxation training and counterconditioning.

Diagnosis and Accommodation Letter for a 504 Plan or Americans with Disabilities Act

Children with misophonia can often benefit from a 504 plan for school.  Does your child have one? If their misophonia affects them at school, then a 504 plan will give you legal rights to advocate for accommodations for your child. See this link about 504 plans.  http://www.ncld.org/students-disabilities/iep-504-plan/is-504-plan-right-for-my-child.

A key phrase from this page is, “504 plans are developed by school teams and parents to support the educational needs of a K–12 student with a disability that “substantially limits one or more major life activity” such as: learning, speaking, listening, reading, writing, concentrating, caring for oneself, etc.”  Misophonia definitely causes problems with concentrating.

Do you need some accommodation in your workplace, or university?  The Americans with Disabilities Act requires employers to make accommodations for your disability.  Misophonia is a disability, in that it impacts your ability to work under certain conditions, and it impacts your ability to be productive in the workplace.

If you just want a custom letter that explains how misophonia meets the criteria of the ADA, this can be provided.  If you need an official diagnosis, we can help you locate someone to provide this.

Parent Coaching

Especially for pre-teen children, parenting methods can have a large impact on the behavior of the child.  The behavioral parenting skills taught by Tom Dozier can produce quick change that converts into deep, long-lasting character change.  It is important to address behavior and emotional problems as part of the misophonia management and treatment plan.  If behavior and emotional problems are not addressed prior to treatment, they can cause problems during treatment and contribute to a relapse in misophonia symptoms after treatment.  The cost is $100 per 50-minute session.  There is a 20% discount for a 10-session package. (Note that Tom has a reduce fee available. Contact him for more information.)
