Psychoeducation is considered a gold standard first line intervention in the care of children with tic disorders, their families, and schools. The training day will cover the content of psychoeducational information, how this can be delivered and role play opportunities for clinicians to practice skills in delivery. Materials will be provided after the training to enable clinicians to use this within their own practice. There will be opportunity for a question and answers session during the day.
