Tinnitus is the presence of ringing or buzzing in the ears or head. Between 10% and 15% of Americans have some degree of tinnitus. There is no cure for tinnitus, which is a symptom of other problems, not a disease itself. Progressive tinnitus management, an intervention developed over the last 22 years, is described. CBT for tinnitus is a component of the intervention program.
