    Abstract

    A hypnotic induction technique was used to facilitate direct observation of multiple tics in a typically developing teenager in a home setting. A comprehensive habit reversal program then was implemented, including awareness training, competing response training, relaxation training, self-monitoring, social support and contingency management. Duration of relaxation was then self-monitored using a changing criterion design. The procedure eliminated multiple tics and achieved long-term maintenance of treatment gains. Implications for assessing and treating tics are discussed.
