CBIT -- cognitive behaviorial intervention therapy


Recommended Posts

Is this the same thing as "habit reversal training"? I've thought about it as a possibility for the future (I think my 4-year-old would be too young to do it right now & his tics are really mild at the moment anyway). But then I wonder if it's really a good thing to do or not, since the advice is normally to ignore/accept the tics, but this therapy aims to teach them how to stop tics, so it feels like a mixed message in a way.


I'd imagine it could be helpful for someone who has a specific tic they want to learn to stop or redirect or maybe for an older person who wanted to try the therapy instead of or in conjunction with a medication. But for a kid, I don't know if I'd do it unless the child really wanted to.
