The quintessential clinical guide for audiologists on tinnitus and hyperacusis patient management
Since publication of the first edition in 2005, new developments have impacted the treatment paradigm for tinnitus, such as sensory meditation and mindfulness. Tinnitus Treatment: Clinical Protocols, Second Edition, by world-renowned tinnitus experts and distinguished authors Richard S. Tyler and Ann Perreau provides comprehensive background information, up-to-date strategies, essential tools, and online supplementary materials grounded in years of clinical experience and research. It fills a gap in graduate education and available materials to empower audiologists to effectively treat patients suffering from bothersome to severely debilitating symptoms associated with tinnitus or hyperacusis.
The textbook includes 15 chapters, starting with three chapters on tinnitus models, treatment approaches, and self-treatment options. The next three chapters summarize counseling approaches for audiologists and psychologists, including introduction of the three-track psychological counseling program for managing tinnitus. Chapters 7 and 8 discuss the use of hearing aids in patients with hearing loss-related tinnitus and sound therapy using wearable devices. Chapter 9 covers smartphone apps for tinnitus assessment, management, and education and wellness, including discussion of limitations. The last six chapters provide guidance on tinnitus management topics including treating children, implementing outcome measures, hyperacusis treatment, and future directions.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.

You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.
Can I exchange/return an e-book?
