Tics and Tourette’s Syndrome are common and can have a considerable impact on the lives of people who struggle with these conditions. Traditionally, people have received no help with these conditions or are prescribed medication. This does reduce the intensity of the problem, however this can bring its own challenges in terms of adherence and unwanted side effects.
This webinar will give therapists the core skills necessary to treat this common condition using evidence-based techniques. This will be familiar to anyone who has treated OCD or any of the major habit disorders. These approaches do not always completely eradicate tics. They can help to reduce symptom severity and impact considerably, and have outcomes that are at least as effective as medication, which has the advantage of helping people to develop lifelong self-management skills.Learning outcomes:- Assessing Tics and Tourette’s Syndrome- Understanding differential diagnosis and co-morbidities including developmental issues- Key behavioural approaches- Key cognitive approaches- Systemic factors and how to use behavioural principles to modify these
