Next TS-Behavior Training Institute is taking place on February 3 & 4th, 2017 in Mandeville Louisiana. Recognizing the critical shortage of trained behavioral therapists for treating Tourette Syndrome (TS) and tic disorders, the Tourette Association of America Inc. has established the Tourette Syndrome Behavior Therapy Institute (TS-BTI). Developed by members of the Tourette Association of America Behavioral Science Consortium, the program is designed to help increase the number and availability of therapists trained in Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT).
As with any task in life, there is no progress without hard work. The Research and Medical Department is the engine of the TAA that drives the advancement of TS knowledge by funding groundbreaking research, developing novel treatments, and helping to train the next generation of top-level scientists and doctors who will work to make life better for people with TS. For over 40 years, the Tourette Association of America has been at the forefront of scientific discovery, research, and treatment advances that serve the Tourette and Tic Disorder community.
