DEVELOPMENT OF A COURSE IN COMPUTERISED COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY AIMED AT RELIEVING THE PROBLEMS OF THOSE SUFFERING FROM NOISE EXPOSURE, IN PARTICULAR FROM LOW FREQUENCY NOISE - NO0207

Description
Previous work has shown that a course of group sessions of psychotherapeutic interventions was successful in alleviating the stress and distress of sufferers from low frequency noise problems. Low frequency noise problems, which are often to difficult solve, become very persistent and distressing. Whilst technical noise control solutions must tale absolute priority, in the absence of solutions it is legitimate to look for ways to assist sufferers to improve their coping and their quality of life.
