Understanding and Treating Anxiety and Depression in Tourette and Tic Disorders
Although motor and vocal tics are the defining and most recognizable symptoms of Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders, many individuals also experience problems with anxiety and a depressed mood. These problems are often overlooked. In this webinar, Dr. Himle discusses the signs and symptoms of normal and abnormal anxiety and depression and helps participants understand some of the reasons that these problems are so common in individuals with TS. More importantly, Dr. Himle explains what treatment options are available, how to find help (or know if you are getting the right help), and outline practical strategies for managing anxiety and mood problems in both adults and children.
