What we do
Defining misophonia is our mission. Assisting in the process of defining the condition is a huge effort in our endeavor, along with assisting those with the condition to find helpful effective management approaches. Providing a venue for support and awareness is another goal and we also try to raise funds with donations to provide to significant researchers who are hot on the trail of finding out all about this distressing disorder.
Helping the world understand what Misophonia is, is our mission. We provide education through our ever-growing list of presenters on the latest research in the field of Misophonia.
We stick up for you in your battle with Misophonia. You are not alone in your struggles and we are here to lend a helping hand.
Along with education the Misophonia Association helps to fund research in the field of Misophonia with help from our donors and sales of the videos of the conventions.
Above all we are here to support people who suffer with Misophonia. We also support families and others in this situation. You can find tremendous resources in our recorded video section from the past conventions from experts in the field.

After posting a “Call for Art” last fall, this beautiful calendar has been created with the artwork sent from artists of all ages from the misophonia community. Each month features the artwork of one person, along with their artist’s statement. There are also interesting facts about misophonia included in each month. Thank you to all the wonderful artists who took the time to create their work and for helping us to create this lovely calendar! We hope you will enjoy the variety of beautiful art throughout 2023!

Quote of the Month
“Our worth and our belonging are not negotiated with other people. We carry those inside of our hearts.”
– Brené Brown
Dr. Davidenko’s team at UC Santa Cruz has tested how visual context affects misophonia reactions by swapping the visual actions associated with triggering noises. Triggering noises are found to be less aversive when juxtaposed with alternate visual associations. The sample videos used in this study were also released for use by other researchers.
