  • TSA Webinar: Transitioning Towards Independence


    On February 24, 2015, TSA (U.S.)-CDC partnership held a webinar on titled "Transitioning Towards Independence" presented by Barbara Coffey, MD, MS, Chief of Tics and Tourette's Clinical Research Program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

    Dr. Coffey presented a very informative program, covering crucial transitional periods that adolescents and their families experience. The webinar covered information related to the transitioning years of adolescents, experiences that bring on stress and anxiety, and strategies for parents, families and teens to alleviate the burden.

    The Question & Answer session in particular gave great insight into the real life situations that both individuals with TS and the families face in the transition periods. Dr. Coffey did a remarkable job responding to the questions by offering a substantial level of information given the time constraints of the webinar.

    The webinar program has been archived and is now available for viewing on the TSA website HERE
