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.  Because misophonia usually elicits and evokes extreme behavior, it can be very disruptive to behavior analytic interventions.

Prevalence of misophonia in typical adult populations is more than 10%, but prevalence in individuals with ASD has not been studied.  Severity ranges from annoying to debilitating.  In this webinar, you will learn how misophonia develops, strengthens, expands, and decays.  Management techniques will be taught that will allow behavior analytic interventions to continue for a client with misophonia.  A behavior analytic intervention will also be presented for neuro-typical clients and adaptations for clients receiving ABA therapy will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to
-    Identify at least three common misophonic trigger stimuli
-    Identify two overt behavioral responses of a person with misophonia
-    Describe the theory of Stimulus-Response Pavlovian conditioning as it applies to misophonia.
-    Describe two environmental manipulations that may reduce the severity of the misophonic response.
-    Describe at least one intervention for misophonia described in peer reviewed literature.

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 7 peer review journal articles.  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://misophoniainstitute.org/ Tom developed a behavior-analytic treatment for misophonia and works with clients by video-chat.
