Hearing Loss and Emotional Regulation -- Samuel Trychin

Trychin, S, (2017) Hearing Loss and Emotional Regulation: Building Resilience.
Sometimes, communication difficulties result in an emotional reaction such as fear/anxiety or irritation/anger. This can happen when we are unexpectedly caught up in a situation in which understanding is important and we are aware that we are not understanding what is being said. It can also occur when we anticipate difficulties in an upcoming situation that previously has been problematic and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, emotional arousal often interferes with clear thinking, resulting in failure to do what we know would e helpful in preventing or resolving communication difficulties. This book contains ways of preventing or reducing emotional reactions in difficult communication situations.
