In this issue, Beukes and colleagues provide initial evidence that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) delivered via the internet, described as internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT), may be a noninferior treatment option for patients with bothersome tinnitus compared with standard face-to-face medical care. Their findings, combined with previous evidence that both CBT and iCBT are helpful in managing tinnitus distress, suggest that CBT is a promising approach for patients who experience bothersome tinnitus.
