FREE! Live Webinar Oct. 4th, 12pm to 1pm EST: Recognizing Misophonia
by Thomas Dozier, MS, BCBA, BAMC:BCCBT
Awards 1 Type II BACB CE Credit with purchase!
This FREE live webinar will help you understand the distinct characteristics of misophonia so that you can recognize it in your clients. Although research on misophonia is limited, several research studies indicate misophonia is a learned respondent behavior condition. Misophonia is a unique sensory response condition, but because it is mostly unknown, it may be mistaken for general sensory sensitivity, anxiety, or compulsive behavior. It may also be incorrectly viewed as operant behavior such as escape from demands, attention seeking, or other aggressive or disruptive behavior. This FREE LIVE webinar will be held on October 4th from 12pm to 1pm, Eastern Time.

Misophonia is a condition where a person has an extreme emotional response (anger/anxiety/disgust), covert behavior (distress response), and overt behavior elicited or occasioned by an innocuous stimulus such as the sound of someone chewing or breathing. Misophonia is very common, affecting over 10% of adults. Median age of onset is about 10 yrs. Once misophonia develops, it usually persists for life. Misophonia is not included in diagnostic criteria of DSM-5 or ICD-10

About the Instructor: Thomas Dozier, MS, is a BCBA and works as a behavioral parenting coach and parenting skills trainer (and misophonia treatment provider). In 2012 a mother introduced him to misophonia, saying it was a hearing disorder with no cure that would ruin her daughter’s life. But the girl had auditory, visual, and olfactory trigger stimuli that produce the same response. This could not be a hearing disorder; it was more likely a respondent behavior disorder. Tom has researched misophonia since then. He is the author of 5 peer review journal articles, with 2 more in review. He is also the author of the book Understanding and Overcoming Misophonia, A Conditioned Aversive Reflex Disorder. In 2016 Tom founded the nonprofit Misophonia Institute to promote awareness, research, and development of treatments for misophonia. https://misophoniatreatment.com/about-tom-and-m-t-i/
