"Diagnosis and Treatment of Tourette Syndrome from a Latino Perspective" Webinar to Take Place June 19


Dr. Richard Zakreski and Laura Zakreski will make this important presentation on behalf of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders.

Somerville, NJ, June 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Tourette Syndrome – which affects all ethnic groups – has in particular impacted the Hispanic-American community in urban areas of New Jersey, the nation and the world. The next New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) Wednesday Webinar – “Diagnosis and Treatment of TS from a Latino Perspective” – on June 19 will include a discussion of the diagnosis and treatment of TS in children and adolescents. Both behavioral and pharmacological approaches will be examined. There also will be a consideration of the unique aspects of mental health understanding and treatment within Latino culture.

This webinar will be presented by Dr. Richard Zakreski and Laura Zakreski. Dr. Zakreski earned his PhD in clinical child psychology from the University of Virginia in 1982 and maintains an independent practice – specializing in the treatment of children, adolescents and college-age adults – in Shrewsbury and Freehold, N.J. Dr. Zakreski specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neurodevelopmental and neurochemical disorders – including ADHD, TS, anxiety/OCD and Asperger’s Syndrome.

Laura Zakreski is a rising second-year PsyD student in the Clinical Psychology program at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology. She is working on a dual concentration in Children and Families of Adversity and Resiliency and in Latino Mental Health.

NJCTS launched the monthly Wednesday Webinar series, which draws an audience from 48 states and 13 countries, in 2008. The series, offered at no cost to participants, features online seminars for parents, educators and professionals on topics of interest to the TS and associated disorders community.
