Huntsville, Ala. ---- Alabama A&M University will host its second three-hour workshop on Tourette Syndrome and other ‘tic’ disorders Tuesday, February 19, in the Clyde Foster auditorium of the College of Business and Public Affairs beginning at 6 p.m.

 

The professional education workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Alan L. Peterson, professor in the Department of Psychiatry and chief of the Division of Behavioral
Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.  It will be based on research supported by the National Institutes of Health.

 

The free Tourette Syndrome workshop is especially geared to professionals and students in the areas of counseling, nursing, occupational therapy, psychology and social work, as well as to parents and teachers.  The activity is being funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) and the National Tourette’s Syndrome Society.

 

The session will primarily emphasize comprehensive behavioral intervention for tics, including function-based intervention and habit-reversal training. After the workshop, participants should be able recognize the common symptoms and clinical characteristics of Tourette Syndrome, understand the impact of environmental events on tics, and receive a variety of other pertinent information.
