About the Course Director:  


Dr. Hashir Aazh, is an audiologist with special interest in the field of rehabilitative audiology. Over the past decade, Hashir has developed a unique approach in embracing methods of modern psychology/psychiatry in audiology practice leading to a new concept called “psycho-audiology”. Although application of psychological skills by non-psychologists in medical field is not new, most disciplines have modified psychological techniques in order to suit their own skill mix.  The uniqueness of Hashir’s approach is that psychological methods have been utilised in their pure forms for the purpose of hearing rehabilitation and adjustment to hearing impairment. In the other words, Hashir’s psycho-audiology method ensures fidelity to theory and protocol of the psychological methods adopted.  

Hashir completed his PhD in London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine at University of London on efficacy of Motivational Interviewing (MI) in audiology practice. The key outcomes from Hashir’s research and clinical work on MI in audiology are listed below:
