Abstract

We were delighted to read the letter by Dr. Theule and colleagues (Theule et al., 2016) commenting on our meta-analysis of behavior therapy for Tourette Syndrome (TS)(McGuire et al., 2014). We welcome this discussion, and were interested to learn of their related meta-analysis on psychosocial treatments for tic disorders. This commentary addresses the similarities and distinctions between these two meta-analytic investigations, and concludes with recommendations regarding the future of treatment research for TS.
