The Misophonia Handbook (Discovering Misophonia: How to live fully with misophonic awareness), part of the Misophonia@School European Union (EU) initiative has been published. The handbook contains chapters written by Duke CMER members: Drs. Ashley Moskovich and Zach Rosenthal; PhD Clinical Psychology Candidates, Rachel Guetta, MA, Jacqueline Trumbull, MA and Yanyan Shan and former Duke visiting scholar and current Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Warsaw in Poland, Marta Siepsiak. This handbook is a colloboration with other EU misophonia researchers and the head of the Italian Misophonia Association. It provides methodological, educational and scientific guidelines dealing with more recent findings on Misophonia. This handbook is "aimed at all those who want to study misophonia in more detail or, having never heard of misophonia, wish to be aware of it and understand what it is about. It is aimed both at people who are misophonic, whether young or adult, and at those who are not misophonic: parents and relatives of misophonic children and young people, schoolteachers and educators, sports tutors and activity entertainers of any kind that may involve people with misophonia."
