Purpose: The purpose of this tutorial is to provide a comprehensive overview of the self-efficacy framework and its application to audiologic rehabilitation.

Method: A literature review was conducted on self-efficacy and its relevance to successful interventions in several health domains. Specific recommendations were presented for audiologic rehabilitation procedures that will enhance self-efficacy.

Conclusions: As is the case in other health domains, clinical intervention by audiologists will be more effective when incorporating a self-efficacy framework in the audiologic rehabilitation process.
