Samuel Trychin, Ph.D.
Psychologist, Educator, Author
A life dedicated to educating people who are hard of hearing and their families and friends.
Dr. Trychin's Living With Hearing Loss Program is a product of twenty-two years of experience working directly with hundreds of people who are hard of hearing and their family members. Additionally, many more people who are hard of hearing, their family members, and professionals who serve them have benefitted from his training programs, presentations, and workshops.
Hearing loss is a communication disorder affecting everyone in the communication situation-- the person speaking as well as the person with hearing loss who is trying to listen. For that reason, the Living With Hearing Loss Program is designed to meet the needs of family members, friends, coworkers, and service providers as well as the person who is hard of hearing.
The overall focus of The Living with Hearing Loss Program is on helping people:
Sam Trychin is one of a kind. Nobody who has ever heard him present his “Coping with a Hearing Loss” program is apt to forget him. He brings to the program competencies and skills that no audiologist (including me) can possibly equal. Next to hearing him talk in person is seeing the videos he has prepared and reading the books he has written. He is able to help people with hearing loss increase their insights into their own behavior, while at the same time sensitizing family members to the problems of their loved ones.” Mark Ross, Ph.D. Audiologist, Professor Emeritus, University of Connecticut
