OCD and Teens/Young Adults:  How to keep them engaged in their own treatment, symptoms, and lives

Presenter: Martin E. Franklin, Ph.D.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an effective treatment for OCD at all age levels. But continuing treatment becomes a challenge in the transition from adolescence to young adulthood because therapists have a hard time properly encouraging these patients to become independent partners in their treatment while still receiving support from family and friends. There are a number of challenges that arise during this developmental stage, but they can be conquered.

Tourette Syndrome and Autism: Similarities and Differences

Presenter: Mark Mintz, MD

The diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome (TS) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is based upon ubiquitous symptoms and signs, which are not dependent upon biological causes. Yet, both TS and ASD are complex neurobiological disorders with many similar medical and behavioral manifestations and complications. Thus, understanding common clinical and biological links between TS and ASD can help to better understand the biological causes and contributors of these disorders, help inform therapeutic options targeted at mechanisms of disease rather than only symptoms, and improve patient outcomes.
