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.

ANNOUNCING our 17th Exclusive All-Access Member’s Live Q&A taking place Sunday, December 3rd at 8:30 am Pacific Time (11:30 am Eastern Time) with Shadee Hardy, LCSW!
Shadee Hardy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Abri Radically Open DBT Clinic in Portland, Oregon. She has been in practice for 19 years and specializes in supporting adults (17+) with misophonia. Ms. Hardy discovered 11 years ago that she has misophonia; this led her to consider how the very therapeutic interventions she was using with clients could help her in better coping and learning to live with misophonia. SInce then she has had a passion for assisting fellow misophones (and their loved ones) in better understanding the condition, themselves, and how to navigate the world with misophonia (rather than simply suffering it).
Ms.Hardy’s work also addresses many of the problems that tend to co-occur with misophonia, including anxiety/depression, interpersonal conflict, difficulty with anger management, overcontrolled coping, and low self-worth. Ms. Hardy’s orientation is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is skills and strategies based. The two therapies that underlie her approach are Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT). Since being trained in RO DBT, Ms. Hardy has seen strong connections between misophonia and over-controlled coping; she’s found that this treatment has offered a unique way of conceptualizing and addressing the co-occurring problems that coincide with misophonia. Ms. Hardy offers culturally sensitive and responsive care to diverse populations, including LGBTQ-affirmative care.
For further information about Shadee Hardy’s approach and her experience in the field, we encourage you to check out her website HERE.

“Misophonia and its Relationship with Other Psychiatric Disorders”
Research shows that misophonia accompanies many psychiatric disorders and should be considered a mental disorder. Although there are suggested diagnostic criteria, no clear ones have been defined yet. This study aims to investigate the relationship of misophonia with other mental disorders and to determine its possible category in diagnostic classification systems.
