Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been used for decades to treat a multitude of psychological disorders. Many of the concepts used by psychologists trained in this procedure can be effectively utilized by clinical audiologists in breaking through some of the barriers impacting hearing and balance disorders including, but not limited to, resistance to trying amplification; parental counseling; tinnitus and hyperacusis management; and aural and vestibular rehabilitation. The practical applications of cognitive behavioral interventions by audiologists will be described.
