Series of Videos Explaining Misophonia

By Tom Dozier

Misophonia, What Is It?

Do you have misophonia? Find out how can you distinguish misophonia from hyperacusis, phonophobia, or simply disliking irritating sounds? Characteristics that define misophonia are explained in a simple way that will help non-miso people.

Misophonic Reflex Response

This video will likely create controversy. Why, because Misophonia is a condition where common sounds cause extreme emotions, such as anger, hate, rage, and disgust. But Tom Dozier has determined that misophonia is actually caused by a physical reflex. What do you think?

Preventing New Misophonia Triggers

If you have misophonia, you don’t want any new triggers. This video tells you how to reduce the risk of developing a new trigger. You can take charge and prevent new triggers. Learn how here.

Talking About Misophonia – What you say helps others understand

The way you describe misophonia to others can have a big effect on whether they understand what you are actually experiencing. Most people cannot grasp the idea that a little sound can fill you with rage or disgust. This video will help you truly communicate with others so they can start to understand what you are experiencing (or at least see that it is something that they really don’t understand).

Webinar: Sequent Repatterning, A New Hypnotherapy Treatment for Misophonia

This webinar introduces a new treatment for misophonia called Sequent Repatterning Therapy developed by Chris Pearson of Yorkshire, UK. The treatment results of the first 23 patients are presented. Chris and the Misophonia Treatment Institute are ready to train hypnotherapists who are interested in learning this method of misophonia treatment.

Misophonia Treatment with Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Progressive muscle relaxation may be the best kept secret in misophonia treatment. It can reduce the anger from triggers and can actually reduce the strength of your response to the trigger. It also has many other general health benefits, and the better you feel, the less triggers affect you.

Sound Sculpting and the Misophonia Management Protocol

Adding background sound can be your quickest action to reduce your misophonia. Audiologist Marsha Johnson developed a method of helping individuals with misophonia using sound that she calls the Misophonia Management Protocol (MMP). This video describes the MMP, which is probably the most widely used treatment for misophonia. The video also describes how you can implement essentially the same technique in your home, on your own.

Misophonia Reflexes, (technical discussion)

Misophonia is a reflex disorder where a typically occurring sound triggers a response of extreme emotion (anger, hate, rage, or disgust). This video talks about the science of reflexes. It explains what they are, how they develop, what it takes to eliminate a reflex like the misophonia reflex. This video explains the mechanism that causes misophonia to originally develop and for new triggers to develop.

Prevalence of Misophonia (Research Results): How Common Is It?

More people have misophonia that we imagine. Maybe 30,000,000 in the US. Tom Dozier shares the results of a recent university study on misophonia and his own survey results of 310 random individuals. Misophonia may be more common than we think.

Diversity of Misophonia – Individual Differences

Many people consider misophonia a disorder that is very similar from person to person. There is a common set of eating and breathing sounds that are triggers for the majority of people. Misophonia also seems to begin at about the same age if many people. Because of these similarities, some say that misophonia is a caused by a neurological defect. This video will show that in 4 ways, there is a large amount of diversity in people with misophonia. This supports that it is not a neurological deflect, but a disorder that develops based on the person’s experiences. [but genetics can still have an effect on who develops misophonia and who does not.]

Misophonia Treatment – Neural Repatterning Technique and the Trigger Tamer

The Neural Repatterning Technique is a treatment method that gently reduces the misophonia reflex by changing/rewiring the brain connections that cause the reflex. This technique was developed by Tom Dozier and has been shown to be very effective in certain cases. The specifics of misophonia are different with every person. Depending on a few key parameters, this may be an effective treatment to reduce or even eliminate a misophonia reflex reaction. The NRT treatment has been automated with the Trigger Tamer app. You can get professional help with this treatment or watch the free online tutorials.
