Although tinnitus is a common international problem, often clinicians find they are unsure of how to treat their tinnitus patients. These two volumes are the first clinical resources for clinicians to provide exact procedures for clinical administration of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). The first volume (Clinical Guidelines) is suitable both for clinicians who conduct TRT and as a textbook for academic training programs. The second volume (Patient Counseling Guide)designed to be used one-on-one with tinnitus (and hyperacusis) patientsis a double-sided resource with information for the clinician on one side and patient information on the other. Anyone who is interested in providing tinnitus management with TRT will find this pair of books immensely useful, practical, and resourceful.
