Brief review of habit reversal training for Tourette syndrome.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychology, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI, USA.


It is well established that Tourette syndrome has a neurobiologic origin. Although pharmacotherapy is the most commonly prescribed intervention, there is considerable evidence to support the use of behavior therapy, specifically habit reversal training, as an alternative or adjunct treatment for some individuals with Tourette syndrome. Unfortunately, many professionals are unfamiliar with habit reversal training. The purpose of this review is to provide readers with a brief review of empiric studies on habit reversal training, update readers on the current state and future of behavior therapy for Tourette syndrome, and provide resources for those readers interested in additional information.
