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.
HOW IT WORKS
All sessions take place over a secure video chat program. Electronic paperwork is completed prior to the first session. Sessions are one time weekly, until all of your goals are met! Let’s get started on a journey to a more confident, fullfilled, and tic-free you!
Over 8-10 weeks of virtual therapy sessions, clients will progress through the stages outlined below.
Evaluation: tic history, current symptoms, co-occuring conditions, goals and plan for therapy
We pick one tic to address first. Self-awareness training and tic detection initiated.
Once the client is able to detect the tic before it comes, competing response training initiated for that tic
This process repeats for every tic the client has. Relaxation training and environmental modifications initiated
Client is discharged when all goals have been met and/or able to implement strategies independently
