There's a lot of debate on this topic, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to discuss it here again. Previous posts have said that exposure to the troubling sounds has been beneficial in the long run. However, audiologists and others say that exposure therapy not only doesn't work, but that it can make things worse. A psychologist told me that systematic, deliberate exposure to a feared stimulus (sound) ALWAYS works if done properly. I'm willing to do the hard work that exposure demands, but I don't want to make myself worse. Has anyone had success with exposure therapy?
