Post masterclass support (included in the Masterclass fee)
- Critical writing task provides an opportunity for the students in order to gain in-depth and hands-on experience of literature review, performing basic examination of the methodological strength of the research papers, and synthesising their outcomes to draw conclusions that can inform their clinical practice.
- The second task is to prepare a video demonstrating the use of CBT for tinnitus and/or hyperacusis through role play. This provides an opportunity for students to practice their counselling skills, critically reflect on their skills and receive constructive feedback from the course tutor. Overall, the students are expected to spend a minimum of 132 hours for preparing and completing their course assignments and reflecting on the feedback provided to them on their assignments.
- Students are encouraged to join the tinnitus and hyperacusis therapists closed group on Facebook (only accessible to course participants). This is a forum that students discuss the challenges and share their experiences using the skills learned in the masterclass.
- Students are invited to join a tinnitus and hyperacusis therapy (THT) group in Facebook for clinical and research discussions and exchange of ideas. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1744946962389230/
Clinical supervision (additional fee applies)
There is no specific amount of training that guarantee competency in tinnitus and hyperacusis rehabilitation. Attending the tinnitus and hyperacusis therapy masterclass provides a fantastic opportunity for hearing healthcare professionals to enhance their and knowledge and skills in delivering rehabilitative approaches for management of tinnitus and hyperacusis in children and adults. Participants will leave this practical course with a solid grounding in tinnitus and hyperacusis therapy that can be put into practice straight away.
We have now introduced post course one-to-one clinical supervision sessions (face-to-face or distance learning). Although this is not a requirement for tinnitus and hyperacusis rehabilitation, research has shown that practice feedback and coaching increases post training proficiency. Clinical supervision provides a bridge between the masterclass and real clinical situation and students will have the opportunity in which the supervisor helps them to ensure quality of clinical care. Students are encouraged to take advantage on this opportunity in order to discuss their patients and receive direct feedback on their therapeutic skills and knowledge. Depending on your professional background and training you may benefit from 3-6 supervision sessions. Each session is 45-60 minutes in duration and costs £180. A discounted rate is available when you buy a package at the time of registration (see registration form for detail).
