Tinnitus Research Seminar with Dr James Jackson - Mon 25 Sep 2023

The Tinnitus Support Group in Brighouse, sponsored by Hearing and Tinnitus Care, opens its doors to all on Monday 25 September 2023, for a seminar by Dr James Jackson. There will be questions and answers after the talk.


“Tinnitus Research: What Science is Telling Us
(And How it Can Help You)”

James has been researching tinnitus for over 20 years and is currently Reader in Psychology at Leeds Trinity University. He is active in Knowledge Exchange, sharing the fruits of research with other institutions and the community. So you can consider this his community service(!) He has a following in tinnitus circles, and presents up and down the country to organisations such as British Society of Audiology, British Psychological Society, Tinnitus UK and various larger tinnitus support groups.


I have asked James to put together a brand new seminar just for us. He will be telling us about key research findings, up to and including recent innovations such as Lenire. Research on tinnitus is always very interesting (to me anyway!) but it can be hard to parse what is helpful and how high the quality is. Often you can read a research paper and not be any the wiser as to how the findings can help you with your tinnitus.


For instance, you may have read "91% of those who used Lenire as advised had sustained relief from tinnitus for at least 12-months after treatment".* However, before you splash out £4,000 you may want to understand how not including data from those who dropped out of the study really affects that claim. Or how they calculated an "improvement" in tinnitus.


Certain treatments are scientifically proven to reduce tinnitus distress, but how do they do that and would they work for you? Some treatments are better for those with certain personality types, for instance. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is not suitable for all but those who it is suitable for would be amazed at how well it works.


James has been lecturing a long time and has a gift for presenting complex subject matter in an easy to understand way. The seminar will be suitable for all those with an interest in tinnitus no matter what their existing knowledge is.

  • People with tinnitus and their loved ones

  • Audiologists

  • Psychologists

  • Students

  • Hearing aid dispensers.


All are welcome, and the usual fee has been waived. There is no need to book for this event. The seminar starts at 6:30pm on Monday 25 September, and you can arrive after 6:15pm at the Salvation Army building, 33 King Street, Brighouse HD6 1NX. Contact Sally Jackson if you have queries or accessibilty needs.
