    This presentation will explore:
    • A brief overview of CBIT and how it works
    • Expected outcomes for those who have done CBIT
    • What you can do to support a family member or loved one who is using CBIT

He is an expert in behavioral approaches for understanding and treating behavioral disorders of childhood, with emphasis on tic disorders and associated conditions.

      My son is quite good at re-engineering his movement tics so that they are less bothersome for him. His "tics of the mind" (OCD symptoms) are more impairing than his tics. He's been working with a therapist who has some training in treating OCD in children, using Exposure and Response Prevention. I have been closely involved, helping re-map the current symptom list from time to time, helping structure the home exercises, and acting as parent coach during many of the homework sessions.

      Some of his symptoms are hard to structure exercises around. Therefore, I would like to learn more about ERP. That's what I personally would benefit from learning more about.

      So, if anyone has any resources to share about ERP, I would be very interested.
