The conference provided discussion on questions such as:
– What is misophonia?
– What causes misophonia?
– How does misophonia develop, maintain, and expand?
– What treatments help and why?
– Ideas for future research on misophonia.

 Some highlights of the symposium that you will learn about by watching the presentations.
  • Sequent Repatterning Hypnotherapy has been enhanced by adding memory reconsolidaiton to the treatment framework.  You will see the data collected from almost 500 people treated vs. the last 80 who had the additional benefit of memory reconsolidation.
  • Fordam University Misophonia Treatment Study preleminary results are were presented by Dean McKay.  These are very hopeful results for misophonia treatment with stress managment and a special exposure procedure (which also incorporated memory reconsolidation).
  • Is misophonia caused by a brain defect or brain learning principles.  find out the implications of research by Sukhbinder Kumar and Tom Dozier.
  • And more… much more.
