It is well documented that an individual’s tics will wax and wane over time and can be exacerbated by stress and anxiety. During the coronavirus pandemic, individuals may experience an increase in tics as a result of the added pressures they are facing. This presentation will provide a brief overview of comprehensive behavior intervention for tics, or CBIT, a specialized form of behavior therapy for the treatment of tics. Given the current need for physical distancing and the inability to conduct in-office visits, the presentation will also include a discussion about providing CBIT using teletherapy.

Join the discussion and learn how to manage your tics practicing CBIT virtually.
