Overview

There are several well-defined psychological intervention tools that can be effectively utilized by those who assist persons with hearing loss. Sorting through those interventions which promote successful patient care from those which are likely only to derail the process or “open up a can of worms” is easier said than done. This three-hour seminar will address that task from the perspective of a Clinical Psychologist. Using examples from pediatric, adult and geriatric populations, I will describe and illustrate a psychological framework and tools for improving the effectiveness of patient care: achieving likability, mitigating traumatic transference, understanding a patient’s psychological construction of hearing loss, eliciting transformative stories, motivational interviewing, facilitating conversational pivotal junctures, methods of collaboration, and making effective mental health referrals.  

Presenter

Michael A. Harvey, Ph.D., ABPP as a Clinical Psychologist has a private practice in Framingham, M.A. He also was a consultant faculty member at Salus University, where he taught online courses relating to the psychological aspects of hearing loss. Dr. Harvey provides training and consultation on mental health issues having to do with hearing loss, including consultation and training for audiologists regarding motivational interviewing and the psychological aspects of patient care. He has published over 50 articles in the field and his latest books are Listen with the Heart: Relationships and Hearing Loss and The Odyssey of Hearing Loss: Tales of Triumph.
