Comprehensive Behavior Intervention for Tics

CBIT is the only effective therapeutic treatment for individuals with Tic disorders and Tourette Syndrome. It combines relaxation training, habit-reversal training, and behavioral therapy to significantly reduce tic symptoms. Clients who complete the CBIT protocol learn how to recognize their “urge” to tic, develop a “competing response” when they feel the tic coming, and make changes to their day-to-day activities in a way that can reduce tic symptoms. All clients receive individualized treatment plans catered to their specific needs.
