Free Webinar: A Graduate Student’s Guide to Assessing and Treating Tics

The education and training of future mental health providers is essential in improving the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of people with tics and Tourette Disorder. Join Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone and the Tourette Association of America for a free webinar on Sunday, April 26 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm to discuss the assessment and treatment of Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders.

In this program, graduate students in psychology, social work, and mental health counseling are invited to learn about the etiology, presentation, and symptoms of Tourette Disorder, and the associated emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges.

Students will receive up-to-date information about how to conduct a comprehensive assessment of Tourette Disorder and also learn evidence-based interventions, including Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Habit Reversal Training), for improving the outcomes in Tourette Disorder.
