We’re trying something new to help treat Tourette Syndrome! Come join us!
This summer, we’re getting together a diverse group of folks, including healthcare professionals, researchers, and, most importantly, people with TS and their families to plot the course for the next generation of research on behavioral treatments for TS.
The two-day conference will bring together this diverse group of individuals in order to learn more about what people think of behavior therapy, or more specifically, CBIT. We will discuss what people think of CBIT in its current forms, including to what extent people see a need for this type of intervention, and what gets in the way of people using CBIT. Based on your input, we will build a plan for research designed to create wide-reaching access to effective behavior therapy.
After the conference, we will use what we learned to create a formal agenda for the next generation of research on behavioral interventions for Tourette and Tic Disorders.
