This symposium will offer an overview on tic disorders for community healthcare providers to help them accurately diagnose and manage tic disorders and comorbid conditions across the lifespan. In a highly interactive format, health care providers will receive practical information and tools for their first patient encounter with Tourette and tic disorders.

She explains how she became passionate about her work through meeting members of the Tourette community and shares an experience she had using CBIT with a patient. Dr. Shannon Bennett concludes by speaking of the exciting advancements occurring in neuroscience, genetics, and technology.   "I train other young people, psychiatrists, and psychologists, and I emphasize how rewarding this work is."  -Dr. Shannon Bennett
