We are conducting a treatment study to examine the use of Comprehensive Behavior Intervention for Tics (CBIT). CBIT is the current gold standard first-line behavioral treatment for children and adolescents with tic disorders.  The treatment includes three main components: (1) it helps patients become more aware of their tics, (2) ...
