Living with a hearing loss requires individuals to maintain a high level of mental and physical vigilance to detect, process, and respond rapidly to unpredictable or hard-to-perceive auditory input. Such vigilance can be an unrecognized source of stress. This presentation will describe a set of coping strategies designed to recognize, talk about, and work with the stressors of living with hearing impairment.
