University of South Florida: Youth Misophonia Treatment Study - Children 8-17

U-HEAR (Unified Protocol to Help Emotions and promote Auditory Relief)

U-HEAR is a USF research study about a treatment for children and adolescents with misophonia. We are currently recruiting children and adolescents (between the ages of 8-17 years old) in Florida who have misophonia symptoms and are interested in therapy. Participants will get ten free therapy sessions. Each session will last 1 hour and happen once a week. All sessions will be offered via telehealth. The treatment process will take about 3 months to complete. Participants that complete all study tasks will receive a $50 payment. If you are interested, please contact our study coordinator, Kelly Kudryk, at kellykudryk@usf.edu or (813) 586-1630.

Baylor College of Medicine: A Study on Characteristics of Misophonia (Selective Sound Sensitivity) and Anxiety Problems (children 8-17)

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine are currently recruiting participants for a study characterizing misophonia in children and adolescents. Youth with misophonia must be 8-17 years old, fluent in English, and have a parent/guardian willing to participate with them.

All procedures are being conducted remotely so people can live anywhere, and the duration of participation is about two weeks. Participation includes a phone screening call, a consent and IQ test conducted over Zoom, a clinical interview over Zoom, and bio-behavioral tasks done online. See the IRB approved flyer for the study below.

Any interested families can email misophonia@bcm.edu or call 713-798-1916 if they are interested.
