Hearing loss is an all too common cause of emotional turmoil, and is on the increase, affecting people at ever younger ages. One study showed that 60 per cent of freshmen entering a U.S. university were found to have hearing loss. Communication is a large part of what the human being is all about, but the inability to hear and communicate effectively often leads to stress, low mood, reduced confidence, decreased self-esteem and feelings of isolation. Hearing loss can also be accompanied by problems such as headaches, dizziness, nausea and tinnitus. In "Coping with Hearing Loss", Christine Craggs-Hinton discusses: causes of hearing problems; practical strategies for more effective communication; hearing aids and audiology equipment, including cochlea implants; hearing therapy, including detailed speechreading exercises; tinnitus, why it occurs and how to reduce it; and, complementary therapies. If you feel alone with your problem, this is the book for you. Rest assured that much can be done to alleviate hearing loss, on both a practical and psychological level.
