Misophonia Coping Skills Guide For Adults, The First of Its Kind

by Misophonia International

“An Adult’s Guide to Misophonia” was published by Dr. Jennifer Jo Brout in 2021, and was the first book of its kind to offer a palatable, clinician-developed coping skills guide to misophonia. As an adult with misophonia, this book has been a bible for me! I pull this book out whenever I am triggered because it reminds me that first of all, I am not alone, and that misophonia while terrible, is something that can be lived with if I continue to work on the coping skills based on sensory regulation, CBT, and psychoeducation.

The difference between RRR and pre-existing therapies is that RRR is based on sensory regulation which is primarily used for Occupational Therapists who help people with autism or sensory processing disorder. This approach helps the body and mind to regulate and lower the fight-flight-freeze reaction. This guide features many sensory and CBT based worksheets to help you calm down, and understand what is happening inside your brain. I highly reccomend RRR for anybody who has misophonia and is struggling to cope with the condition.

“This book is a guide for adults with misophonia. This guide was originally written as a guide for parents to assist their children to cope with misophonia. However, I have had many requests to translate this work for adults interested in a coping skills approach. The concepts are very much the same for individuals of all ages. However, developmental and contextual differences are important to be aware of and are therefore included throughout.

The clinicians who are called upon to assess and help individuals with misophonia are vast, as we do not yet know what misophonia is. Without understanding the disorder, we certainly don’t know how to treat it. While research is underway, we are still without a validated treatment. Given this, I have developed an approach to help those with misophonia cope with the disorder based on the integration of both physiologically and cognitively based interventions, as well as psychoeducation and interdisciplinary consultation.”
