How to Manage Your Tinnitus is a self-help workbook that is intended for use by patients or by anyone who is bothered by tinnitus. This third edition of the workbook has been extensively reviewed and expanded to include new sections describing key components of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The DVD and CD are included with the workbook. The DVD contains four interactive videos, all of which are captioned. 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 handbook—the 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 techniques—deep 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.

Progressive Tinnitus Management: Clinical Handbook for Audiologists describes PTM in detail. Minimal background information is provided with the focus on describing the clinical procedures for conducting PTM. The handbook includes 28 separate appendices to facilitate the clinical implementation of PTM with the appropriate flowcharts, procedural guides, questionnaires, patient handouts, and forms. A DVD and a CD are included with the handbook. The DVD contains four interactive videos, all of which are captioned. The first two videos show the education that is provided to patients during the first and second sessions of PTM Level 3 Group Education. These videos are designed for group viewing by patients in the clinical environment. The third and fourth videos on the DVD provide demonstrations of two relaxation techniques—deep breathing and imagery. These relaxation videos can be used to supplement the Level 3 Group Education. The CD contains PowerPoint files that should be used for the Level 3 Group Education sessions when conducting live presentations.

Progressive Tinnitus Management: Counseling Guide is designed for conducting one-on-one counseling. While the PTM counseling involves both audiologic and psychologic counseling, this book focuses on the audiologic counseling. Normally, this book would be used for patients who require PTM Level 5 Individualized Support. However, it can be used for any patient who requires individual counseling to learn how to manage reactions to tinnitus. The Counseling Guide is used like a flip chart, but laid flat on a table between clinician and patient. One side provides bulleted talking points to aid the clinician in describing the concepts. The other side faces the patient and shows simplified text and illustrations to facilitate comprehension. The Counseling Guide, which is almost 300 pages long, includes three sections. The first section is a complete description of the PTM audiologic counseling, which corresponds to the education that is provided during the first Level 3 group workshop. The second section corresponds to the second Level 3 group workshop, as a follow-up to the first workshop. The third section is a counseling guide for patients who suffer from reduced sound tolerance (hyperacusis). A 76-minute audio CD is included with the Counseling Guide. The 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.
