15th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome & Tic Disorders

Venue: Congress centre of the Royal Museum for Central Africa, Brussels


Event Notes:

Brussels will be this year’s host city for the European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS) annual conference from the 7th to 9th of June 2023

The ESSTS conference sees the coming together of international researchers and clinicians specialising in movement disorders and particularly tics and Tourette syndrome. It’s a warm and friendly conference with fascinating updates from research into this misunderstood condition which has the same prevalence as autism and accompanied by many co-morbidities.

Not only will there be a packed programme of presentations, posters, workshops, prizegiving, panel discussions and much more – there will be a demonstration of new technology worn on the wrist, as tried by singer Lewis Capaldi, which has been found to reduce tics using electrical stimulation. There will be a demonstration of this at the conference.

Amazing add-ons to the conference include a ‘training school’ for clinicians (physicians, psychologists, psychotherapists, nurses, medical students and other professionals) who are interested in the clinical aspects of TS on Tuesday, 6 June 2023 1-6pm at the Congress centre of the Royal Museum for Central Africa.

Another add-on (a first for Belgium to support and recognise the different languages found in in the country including French and Dutch) there will be behavioural therapy for tics training workshops in Dutch, French and English to cater as many healthcare professionals as possible.

We would be delighted if you would join us
