Free talking therapy offer to young people 11 to 13 years old.

Researchers are looking for young people interested in trying out a new way of working therapeutically to try and reduce tic frequency. This research will help us to understand what is helpful to young people in trying to reduce their tic frequency, and will help us to learn more about what we can do. We are looking for boys and girls aged between 11 and 13 to take part in research.

We will be using mindfulness, which does not involve taking any medication, or any medical procedure – it is a psychological approach that involves looking at the way we think. Participants can be visited at home if preferred by a psychologist who will explain the intervention and how the talking therapy works.

There will also be simple questionnaires to complete. There will be a follow up 1 month after the study. Parental guidance and involvement will be requested before children can take part.

This research study has now ended and results will be published later in 2017.
