Tourette Syndrome

Characterized by tics (repetitive, involuntary movement or vocalization)

Treatment & Diagnosis


For Tourette Syndrome (TS) to be identified, several motor tics and at least one vocal tic must be present over a period of 12 months without a break of more than 3 months.


Multi-element management approach is recommended.

Behavior therapy- Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Tics, including habit-reversal training, can help you monitor tics, identify premonitory urges and learn to voluntarily move in a way that’s incompatible with the tic.

Psychotherapy In addition to helping you cope with Tourette syndrome, psychotherapy can help with accompanying problems, such as ADHD, obsessions, depression or anxiety.
