The first two videos show the education that is provided to patients during the first and second sessions of PTM Level 3 Group Education (this video is different from the one for the PTM clinical handbookthe workbook version is designed for individual viewing at home while the handbook version is designed for group viewing in the clinical setting). The third and fourth videos on the DVD provide demonstrations of two relaxation techniquesdeep breathing and imagery. These relaxation videos can be used to supplement the Level 3 Group Education. The 76-minute audio CD contains a tutorial of how sound can be used to manage tinnitus, followed by samples of different sounds. Clinicians can use the CD to supplement the PTM counseling.
