University College London (UCL) Ear Institute is offering a three-day master class called Tinnitus and Hyperacusis in Adults and Children.  The course will be held January 21 - 23 in 2014. 

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ear/courses/shortcourses/aamc/aamc-pages/tinnitusandhyperacusis

The 3 day course will begin with a research update on the current understanding of the mechanisms of tinnitus and hyperacusis.  In lectures and workshops, the different approaches used to assess and manage tinnitus and hyperacusis in adults will be addressed including counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness meditation (known as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy or MBCT), and acoustic stimulation strategies.  On the third day of the class, lectures and case studies will be presented on the available strategies to manage tinnitus and hyperacusis in children, and how these strategies need to be adapted to the special needs of children.

The lectures and workshops in the course will be given by experts from the Ear Institute and the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, and by specially invited guest speakers.  Speakers include Laurence McKenna, David Baguley, Don McFerran, Veronica Kennedy, Derek Hoare, Josephine Marriage, Rosie Kentish, Lucy Handscomb, Breege MacArdle, and Roland Schaette.
