Hosted by:

M. Zachary Rosenthal, PhD

Dr. Rosenthal is an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Duke University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Duke University Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. He is Director of the Duke Cognitive Behavioral Research and Treatment Program (CBRTP) and the Sensory Processing and Emotion Regulation Program. He also is the Program Director for the Duke Clinical Psychology Fellowship Program, and Vice Chair for Clinical Services in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Rosenthal is a licensed psychologist in North Carolina with expertise in contemporary cognitive behavioral therapies (CBTs), and is an expert in the treatment of BPD using dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). He is active in clinical training for graduate students, Medical Psychology interns, post-docs, and community clinicians throughout North Carolina. He provides educational training to community mental health and substance abuse professionals through a partnership between Duke University, AHEC, and the North Carolina Evidence-Based Practices Center.

Jennifer Jo Brout, EdM, PsyD

Dr. Brout is a New York State Certified School Psychologist, a Connecticut Professional Licensed Counselor, and she also holds a Doctorate in School/Clinical-Child Psychology. She is also the mother of adult triplets, and is a Misophonia sufferer herself. Disappointed by her own experiences with the state of the field when seeking help for her own child in 1999, Dr. Brout began efforts to establish better research practice, improved diagnosis, and innovative clinical practice related to Misophonia (under the name “auditory over-responsivity). Dr. Brout has been at the forefront of research in this area for over 18 years, having established the Sensation and Emotion Network (SENetwork) in 2007, along with Sensory Processing and Emotion Regulation Program at Duke University in 2008. She established the International Misophonia Research Network (IMRN) as an affiliate of SENetwork 2015, in order to more specifically focus her efforts on the particular constellation of symptoms of Misophonia, or Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome. With IMRN, Dr. Brout continues to bring together multi-disciplinary teams of highly esteemed academic researchers and clinicians in order to share resources, eventually culminating in research papers, academic conferences, and innovative treatment.

Sukhbinder Kumar, PhD

Dr. Kumar is a neuroscientist and is currently working as a Research Fellow at Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London (UCL) and Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University (UK). He received his PhD from Newcastle University (UK) in 2004. His research concerns understanding brain mechanisms of auditory perception, cognition and emotion processing in normal human subjects and how these mechanisms go wrong in disorders of perception such as musical hallucinations and disorders of emotion processing such as misophonia. To address these questions he uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) combined with computational modelling and behavioural testing. Dr Kumar has published over 30 peer-reviewed articles in neuroscience journals. Dr. Kumar and colleagues from the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University published a groundbreaking misophonia study in Current Biology (February, 2017). During this webinar, Dr. Kumar will be speaking about this study, the results and the impact this study has in regards to misophonia.
