Jennifer Jo 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 currently the Director of the International Misophonia Research Network, and 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 her efforts to establish better research practice, improved diagnosis, and innovative clinical practice related to misophonia.
