This case study describes brief psychotherapy with a 67-year-old man who had a severe-to- profound hearing loss. In his words, he began treatment "to get my wife off my back," as his wife wanted him to be evaluated for hearing aids. The therapist used a narrative treatment approach to externalize and personify the hearing loss and also to facilitate "remembering" conversations concerning the patient's grandfather. Clinical vignettes and theoretical notes are offered.
