U-HEAR (Unified Protocol to Help Emotions and promote Auditory Relief)
Misophonia is a sensitivity that some people have when they hear certain noises. When they hear these noises, they often experience significant feelings of frustration, anger, and or other intense emotions. Some examples of these noises include breathing, swallowing, tapping, and smacking lips.
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.
