Tourette Syndrome

Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary tics and vocalizations. It sometimes also includes the compulsive utterance of obscenities. Someone with Tourette syndrome might repeatedly blink their eyes or blurt out unusual sounds. To be diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, an individual must experience at least one vocal tic and multiple motor tics. Men are more likely than women to experience Tourette syndrome, which typically first emerges in childhood. The cause is unknown. Behavioral or psychotherapy can be a very effective part of a holistic treatment plan for Tourette syndrome. If you (or a child in your care) are experiencing Tourette syndrome, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s experts today.
