Venue: Guildford G live
Dr Hashir Aazh and Professor Brian C.J. Moore return with a new book in 2022. The ticket price includes a copy of the book, which you will collect when you check in to the venue. Or you can purchase a ticket without the book.
Worldwide, about one billion people experience tinnitus at some point in their life. Tinnitus is a life-changing experience for many of them. Learning effective management strategies in a timely fashion is the key to dealing with tinnitus-related distress. The main aim of this book is to teach a person with tinnitus how to reduce distress.
Hashir Aazh and Brian C.J. Moore bring together their complementary expertise. Hashir Aazh is an academic-clinician who pioneered audiologist-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for tinnitus, and Brian Moore is one of the world’s leading researchers on human hearing and its disorders. In creating this ten-step self-help guide, they combine cutting edge knowledge of auditory science and theoretical frameworks in modern psychology with the insight they have acquired from clinical encounters about the complexities of the human experience of tinnitus and how to help people to deal with it.
The book introduces a cast of characters from Beauty and the Beast to Moby Dick, from Dante to Muhammad Ali and from Sigmund Freud to Rumi, Buddha and Epictetus. Packed with metaphors and practical tips, they draw a realistic picture of what the recovery from tinnitus-related distress looks like, and then dive into the deep and explore a variety of experiences of tinnitus and their complexities.
Everything you need to know about living well with tinnitus is presented in ten steps.

If I had read this book before practising over 40-years of tinnitus management, I would definitely have been a more effective therapist and clinician.
Robert W. Sweetow, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of California
With real life examples to guide the reader and proven cognitive-behavioural techniques, the book will help people distressed by tinnitus to overcome suffering and live a meaningful life.

I think it will be an excellent book for professionals with an interest in tinnitus treatments in general and understanding CBT for tinnitus patients in particular.
