Strategies for Reducing Tinnitus Distress

Intermittent or chronic tinnitus can negatively impact a person’s quality of life, particularly if the person is highly sensitive to the ringing in his or her ears or has difficulty accepting the condition. While there is no cure for tinnitus, there are a variety of treatment options, ranging from self-help interventions and face-to-face counseling to more invasive treatments, including the use of cochlear implants. This journal self-study starts with a discussion of the situations in which patients report increased or decreased tinnitus and how acceptance of tinnitus affects tinnitus distress and anxiety. It then describes the use of cochlear implants to more directly address tinnitus and an Internet-based treatment to target psychological and emotional aspects of living with the disorder. Audiologists will be able to use this information to help identify possible ways to decrease tinnitus and increase tolerance and acceptance of the bothersome condition.
