Misophonia Measure Development

Misophonia Measure Development

Development and validation of a new self-report measure of misophonia.

There are very few measures of misophonia that have been developed rigorously with strong psychometric properties. This means that studies of misophonia to date are limited by the quality of the measures that are used. To understand what misophonia is and how to treat it, high quality measures are needed. That is the goal of this study. Specifically, in this study we are developing and scientifically validating a new measure of misophonia symptoms and related problems. This involves interviews with sufferers and their family members, as well as several rounds of self-report measurement using multiple methods, including those that are prospective. Our goal is to develop a cutting-edge, reliable, and valid scale that can be used to assess misophonia symptoms and the underlying problems that can be targeted for change in treatments.

You may be eligible for this research study if:

You (or your family member) are extraordinarily bothered by sounds such as chewing, slurping, throat clearing, finger tapping, foot shuffling, keyboard tapping, rustling, nasal sounds, pen clicking, etc.
The experience of such sounds interferes with day-to-day life
You are 18 years or older
