Abstract Objective: Persistent tinnitus affects 10 to 15% of adults. Little is understood about why only a small percentage of patients become severely affected. Catastrophic thinking has been suggested as one potentially relevant factor that might influence a patient's coping behavior, and thus tinnitus habituation. The current study investigates the concept of tinnitus catastrophizing and its relation with distress and medical utilization in recent onset tinnitus. Design: Participants were… 
Role of worry in patients with chronic tinnitus and sensorineural hearing loss: a preliminary study
TLDR
It is found that tinnitus-related anxiety and depressive symptoms and handicap were significantly associated with proneness to worry (linear regression models, p < 0.01), whereas no associations were found with the psychoacoustic measures, suggesting the usefulness of worry assessment when managing chronic tinnitis in clinical practice.
A Scientific Cognitive-Behavioral Model of Tinnitus: Novel Conceptualizations of Tinnitus Distress
TLDR
A coherent cognitive-behavioral model of tinnitus distress is proposed that is more in keeping with contemporary psychological theories of clinical problems and which postulates a number of behavioral processes that are seen as cognitively mediated.
Impact of Multiple Factors on the Degree of Tinnitus Distress
TLDR
It is demonstrated that single factors can be distinguished in a manner that explains their causative association and influence on the induction of tinnitus-related distress through a simultaneous analysis of these factors.
Psychosocial Variables That Predict Chronic and Disabling Tinnitus: A Systematic Review.
TLDR

Tinnitus-related distress and pain perceptions in patients with chronic tinnitus – Do psychological factors constitute a link?
TLDR
Psychologists should conceptualize and address individualised interactions of common cognitive-emotional processes in addressing psychosomatic symptom clusters across syndromatic patients with varying distress levels, as well as investigate the co-occurrence of tinnitus-related distress and pain experiences alongside psychological factors that may underlie their association.
Living with tinnitus and the health care journey: An interpretative phenomenological analysis

Catastrophizing and Fear of Tinnitus Predict Quality of Life in Patients With Chronic Tinnitus
TLDR
The findings confirm earlier suggestions that tinnitus-related concerns and fears are associated with impaired quality of life, which is in line with a cognitive behavioral account of chronic tinnitis.
[Psychological distress associated with acute tinnitus].
TLDR
Patients with acute tinnitus can be differentiated in terms of their distress and the psychological impairment caused by their symptoms, and results suggest that the immediate reaction to the manifestation ofTinnitus might be of prognostic value for the level of emotional distress experienced in chronic tinnitis.

Assessing audiological, pathophysiological, and psychological variables in chronic tinnitus: A study of reliability and search for prognostic factors
TLDR
A standardized interview was developed to assess tinnitus history, summarize audiological fmdings, screen for etiological conditions, and explore tinnitis-related psychological complaints (Structured Tinnitus Interview), showing that most of these components can be assessed with acceptable or high reliability.

The role of cognition in tinnitus
TLDR
A tentative model of the road from tinnitus generation to annoyance via cognitive function is suggested, and an important role of cognitive processes at different levels from basic cognitive function to more conscious appraisal of the consequences of tinnitis is suggested.
