Rogers hosts Tourette Syndrome Behavior Therapy Institute09/12/17 07:35:pm
Rogers Behavioral Health in Oconomowoc was the host site for the Tourette Syndrome Behavior Therapy Institute (TS-BTI) the weekend of September 9 and 10. This intensive two-day training in Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) procedures educated a variety of mental health practitioners. Sponsored by the Tourette Association of America, the training combines elements of habit reversal training with psychoeducation and function-based behavioral interventions.
Eighteen clinicians traveling from New York to California attended the Oconomowoc event. In addition to the 18 participants, faculty representatives for the Tourette Association included Douglas Woods, PhD, from Marquette University, Michael Himle, PhD, from the University of Utah, and Denise Walker, program manager of the Research and Medical Programs of the Tourette Association of America.
“It’s an honor for Rogers to be able to host this event, and numerous participants shared that this was one of the best trainings they’ve ever attended,” says Barry Thomet, Outreach representative, who has planned nearly 10 training events on this scale.
